William Hall Bush (born October 13, 1971)[2] is an American former radio and current television host. He is a member of the Bush family, which includes two former U.S. presidents and other political figures.

After appearing as a correspondent on Access Hollywood from 2001 to 2004, Bush became a primary anchor of the program in 2004. Bush also hosted The Billy Bush Show from 2008 to 2014.[3]

In October 2016, during the presidential election, he was part of the controversy when the 2005 Access Hollywood recording surfaced of him and presidential candidate Donald Trump having a lewd conversation. Bush was fired from Today shortly afterwards.[4]
