Rickey Smiley to Host NAB Marconi Radio Awards


This year’s NAB Marconi Radio Awards Dinner & Show will be hosted by top-rated syndicated radio personality Rickey Smiley. The event will take place October 1 at the 2015 Radio Show, produced by the National Association of Broadcasters and Radio Advertising Bureau, and held at the Marriott Marquis Atlanta.

Every morning, millions of Americans in nearly 60 cities tune in to “The Rickey Smiley Morning Show.” Smiley’s stand-up persona, in addition to the show’s mix of celebrity interviews, trademark prank phone calls and discussion of current news, makes the show a popular option among radio listeners.

“Smiley’s ‘down home’ humor and ability to connect with diverse audiences makes him an ideal host for the Marconi Radio Awards and Dinner,” said NAB Executive Vice President of Radio John David. “We look forward to the enthusiasm he will add to the overall experience.”

In addition to regular programming, Smiley promotes multiple community-focused initiatives through his radio platform. Examples include “Father’s Day,” which reunites fathers with their children, “Top 3 Things You Need To Know,” a segment that provides insight on social and political issues and a health segment that continually promotes wellness.
