Wurtzel began his hosting career in college when he created and hosted Eastern Expedition at Eastern Connecticut State University. This show quickly gained attention when it won a BEA Award in Las Vegas for Best Student Production.[1]

In 2009, Wurtzel was selected through a nationwide search to host the 3-hour Game Show Network live game show GSN Live. Already the Audience Warm-Up and Plaza Producer for CBS's The Early Show, this attention led Wurtzel to be named Backstage Correspondent for CBS's Early Backstage segments.

Wurtzel is currently an entertainment/lifestyle reporter for WSMV-TV in Nashville, covering both Better Nashville and News & More at Midday. Wurtzel is also an accomplished producer, having worked on major reality programming television shows such as Celebrity Apprentice, Kitchen Nightmares, America's Got Talent, and Jerseylicious.
