PITTSBURGH, PA, May 22, 2007 - Back by Popular Demand…..AM 860's Bev Smith is moving back to her original program time starting May 28, 2007. You can now listen to "The Bev Smith Show" from 7 pm to 10 pm.

Bev Smith began her television and radio career in 1971 when she was named Pittsburgh's first African-American Consumer Affairs Investigative Reporter for WPXI Television, an NBC affiliate. While a reporter, she received numerous awards for consumer investigation, including the 1980 and 1989 Pennsylvania Social Security Outstanding Journalist Award, an award that had never before been presented to any journalist and has not been given to a journalist since then.

In 1975, she was named News and Public Affairs Director for the Sheridan Broadcasting Company. Bev also hosted a lively talk show on Sheridan's flagship station, WAMO. Since then, Bev Smith has taken her "fire brand" style of talk shows to KDKA and WTAE Radio in Pittsburgh; WGBS (now WNWS) in Miami; WKIS in Orlando; and WRC in Washington. She has guest hosted on the Larry King Show and the popular Kathy Hughes Show on WOL Radio in Washington. Bev served as the host of a one-hour talk show, "Our Voices," which was seen nationally on Black Entertainment Television and in 40 countries outside the United States.

Today Bev Smith is heard daily throughout the country on American Urban Radio Networks via "The Bev Smith Show," the only national talk show targeted to a Black audience. Known as the "Queen of Night-Time Talk Radio," Bev Smith is the highest-ranked and only African-American woman on Talker's Magazine's "Heavy Hundred" list of the most influential talk radio hosts in America.

Be sure to set your radio to AM 860 Monday through Friday at 7 pm to listen to "The Bev Smith Show."
