    BlogTalkRadio, the world’s largest social broadcasting network with more than 18 million unique visitors and 40 million listens per month, announces that renowned broadcaster Tavis
    Smiley will launch the Tavis Smiley Network (TSN). This marks
    BlogTalkRadio’s first talent-branded network and first alliance with a
    national media personality. The Tavis Smiley Network (TSN) debuts on June
    25th with multiple shows including the daily “Tavis Talks,” Smiley’s
    return to live call-in radio. Throughout the inaugural season of the Tavis
    Smiley Network, guests will include Oscar®-winning actress Helen Hunt,
    Larry King, Hugh Laurie, Maya Angelou, Suze Orman, Walter Mosley, Mindi
    Abair, Dwight Gooden, the Sugar Hill Gang, and many more.

    “Tavis brings a new level of broadcast excellence to the platform that
    bolsters the evolution of BlogTalkRadio,” said Alan Levy, Founder and CEO
    of BlogTalkRadio. “We are thrilled to offer our listeners even more
    compelling content through Tavis and his network featuring other top
    broadcasters.”

    “BlogTalkRadio gives me the ability to engage with fellow citizens in a
    way I haven’t been able to since 2001,” said Smiley. “I’m excited about
    this partnership with BlogTalkRadio and look forward to the launch of the
    Tavis Smiley Network (TSN), the new home for smart talk online.”

    The Tavis Smiley Network (TSN): “Smart talk. Online.” will feature new
    shows by hosts whose focus will include relationships and advice (Rolonda
    Watts), how to live a diet-free lifestyle (Robert Ferguson), harnessing
    the power of social media in business, sports, and entertainment (Beverly
    Macy), the news media (John Daly), America’s growing responsible
    fatherhood movement and the importance of mentoring (Kenneth Braswell),
    politics to pop culture (Stephanie Robinson), and humor (Rick Najera).
    Other shows will be announced and added to the line-up in the coming days.

    Veteran journalist and talk-show producer Michael Horowicz will executive
    produce TSN for Smiley Radio Properties, Inc. Horowicz’s credits include
    The Late Late Show on CBS, the syndicated Geraldo show, Tom Snyder on CNBC
    as well as shows on MSNBC and other cable channels. Horowicz and Smiley
    first worked together when Horowicz recommended Smiley for his very first
    national television appearance on CNBC’s Rivera Live.

    Recently, BlogTalkRadio announced that experienced media executives
    Stephen Colvin (former CEO of Newsweek Daily Beast) and Craig Marks
    (former editor of Spin, Blender and Popdust) have joined the company.

    and Stephen Colvin has joined as a Strategic Advisor.
