Steve Harvey popular syndicated radio personality, television host and best-selling author, will be inducted into the NAB Broadcasting Hall of Fame during the NAB Show Radio Luncheon Tuesday, April 8 in Las Vegas.
Harvey began his career in the mid 1980’s as a stand-up comedian and has held many positions acting, hosting, writing and producing for television and film. Currently, Harvey hosts the top-rated syndicated radio program, “The Steve Harvey Morning Show;” the syndicated television game show “Family Feud;” and the television talk show “Steve Harvey,” which earned him the 2013 People’s Choice Award for “Favorite New Talk Show Host”. Harvey recently renewed deals in January 2013 for his daytime television talk show and radio show.
“The Steve Harvey Morning Show” syndicated by Premiere Networks since 2005, is the #1 syndicated morning show in America, #1 with African-American radio listeners and currently airs on 70 radio stations reaching more than 6 million listeners weekly.
The popular “Strawberry Letter” segment, in which Harvey responds to listeners’ relationship questions, led to his first book, “Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man,” which is an international best-seller and was adapted into a major motion picture by Screen Gems.
