Tavis Smiley’s 20+ Years in Broadcasting
In 1991, Tavis Smiley made his broadcast debut with Just a Thought, a one-minute “hot issues” commentary on KGFJ-AM/Los Angeles. Today, Tavis Smiley is the first and only American to simultaneously host signature talk shows on both public television (PBS) and public radio (NPR). In 2010, Smiley launched Tavis Smiley Reports, a series of primetime PBS specials that take him on the road to examine some of the country’s most defining moments. He has authored and edited 16 books, including New York Times best-sellers, one of which was published under his own imprint, SmileyBooks. In 2009, his alma mater, Indiana University, honored him by establishing The Tavis Smiley Atrium at its School of Public and Environmental Affairs. That same year, Smiley released STAND, his first documentary film, which he directed, co-wrote, and produced. In 2013, BlogTalkRadio launched their first personality channel, Tavis Smiley Network. Tavis has received numerous honorary doctorate degrees and TIME magazine has dubbed him one of the world’s 100 most influential people.

Author John Stover was not only a man on a mission, he was a man in a mission. His “Love Rescue Me” trilogy, a series of quasi-autobiographical adventure novels, was written two hours at a time on Los Angeles Central Library computers while living out of downtown’s Midnight Mission.
The novels are the culmination of three decades of a rollercoaster life that has seen success in the clothing industry fade to homelessness due to alcoholism, drug abuse, and an accident rendering him briefly paralyzed from a broken neck.
The former Marina del Rey resident reads from his “Love Rescue Me” series on Thursday, April 10, at Book Soup in West Hollywood.
