Biography

Doug Grunther is the host of "The Woodstock Roundtable," a critically acclaimed radio talk program broadcast throughout the Hudson Valley Region of New York between New York City and Albany. He has interviewed nationally renowned individuals such as Pulitzer Prize winner Edward Albee, historian Arthur Schlessinger, Jr., and comedian Alan King.

Mr. Grunther created Trivia Blast in 1988 and has received rave reviews at corporate and special events around the country. Trivia Blast is the exciting program that generates competitive fun, laughter, and cheers. The entire audience is divided into teams seated at tables. Specially designed Trivia questions generate team building, social interaction, fun and excitement. In addition to cheering and laughing, Trivia Blast develops a greater awareness of the power of collaboration to improve group and organization performance.

At a Trivia Blast event the audience is seated at tables. Each table selects a team captain and a "creative" team name that reflects the personalities at the table. After an entertaining warm-up, host Doug Grunther explains how the game works. Questions are carefully selected to stimulate brainstorming, camaraderie and teamwork. And some of questions can relate specifically to the theme of your meeting or event.

In between the rounds, Mr. Grunther leads the teams in "Groaners," "Brainstorm This," and other specially designed formats which stimulate creative thinking and communication skills. Audience members become the stars of the show.

Doug Grunther can provide a choice of formats ranging in duration from one hour and fifteen minutes to two and a half hours. Or he can adapt Trivia Blast to meet a more specific team building or entertainment need.

Doug Grunther graduated Columbia University in 1972, with a degree in Philosophy. He was nominated for a Rhodes Scholarship and captained the varsity tennis team to Columbia's first ever Ivy League Championship. He currently lives in Kingston, N.Y.
