Mo Rocca Bio

My Grandmother's Ravioli host Mo Rocca is best known for his off-beat news reports and satirical commentary. Currently a Correspondent for CBS Sunday Morning News with Charles Osgood, he’s also a panelist on NPR's hit weekly quiz show Wait, Wait...Don’t Tell Me! and the host of Foodography on the Cooking Channel. Mo spent four seasons as a correspondent on Comedy Central’s The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and four seasons as a correspondent on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.

He went on to write and produce for other kids' series, including ABC’s Pepper Ann and Nickelodeon's The Wubbulous World of Dr. Seuss — a pre-school series combining the whimsy of Seuss characters with the magic of Jim Henson puppetry.
