The popular actor, author, entertainment journalist, producer and father Mario Lopez to be the host of the 2013 NAHA Awards Ceremony.
As if the excitement and magic of NAHA weren’t enough, prepare to be charmed by this popular and multi-talented entertainer!
Lopez is the host of both the nationally syndicated daily show EXTRA and Fox’s hit music series The X Factor. He is also the host of the soon to be nationwide Clear Channel radio show “On with Mario Lopez.” Lopez is also an avid sports fan, taking his love for sports, specifically boxing, to the next level as a recurring commentator on HBO Boxing. Another product saw Lopez as the producer of a documentary on the sport.
Lopez is a New York Times bestselling author of series of healthy eating guides Extra Lean and Extra Lean Family as well as Mario Lopez’s Knockout Fitness, a bestselling fitness book. A whim to diversify as an author led to Mud Tacos, a vibrant children’s book he co-authored with his sister Marissa, soon followed by Mario & Baby Gia, a children’s book he wrote for his daughter, Gia.
The multi-talented Lopez has also been chosen as the recipient of the the 2013 PBA Beautiful Humanitarian Award for his work with a variety of charitable initiatives focusing on raising awareness and funds for many causes that support the positive and healthy development of children and young adults.
Among his many pet causes, Lopez’s work as an Alumni Ambassador of Fitness with the Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA). As part of the organization’s BE GREAT campaign, he has relentlessly called attention to the major issues affecting today’s young people, including the importance of graduating from high school and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Lopez is also a passionate supporter of other organizations, including Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, Community Youth Athletic Center of Chula Vista, Jameson’s Army, and Padres Contra el Cancer.
“It is my honor to be able to host the 2013 North American Hairstyling Awards, and I am very humbled to receive the Professional Beauty Association’s Beautiful Humanitarian Award. Beauty professionals help others to look and feel their best, and I applaud their work and talents,” states Lopez.
