Tavis Smiley

 
I have always been a big fan of Tavis Smiley ,who has been a success story on PBS .I was thinking how much I missed his show that used to be shown on BET today.
 
His radio program has become a destination attracting the top names in arts and entertainment, politics and culture. I had the pleasure of seeing him at the University of Cincinnati 2 years ago and I was incredibly impressed with his wisdom, advocacy and passion.
 
Tavistalks.com is an online extension of Tavis Smiley on PBS, The Tavis Smiley Show from PRI, Tavis Smiley’s national radio commentary is also heard on the Tom Joyner Morning Show.
 
Time selected Smiley as one of America’s 50 most promising young leaders. Newsweek profiled him as one of the “20 people changing how Americans get their news” and dubbed him one of the nation’s “captains of the airwaves.”
 
His foundation which is called the Tavis Smiley Foundation, mission is to enlighten, encourage and empower youth by providing leadership skills that will promote and enhance the quality of life for themselves, their communities and our world.
