PBS and PRI Host Tavis Smiley & Politics with Jason Johnson


Hour 1

Dan Burke Photography

We’ll listen back to Marty’s interview she did with PBS and PRI host TAVIS SMILEY last week at the University of the Arts. Smiley has a lot to talk about. He was in Philadelphia celebrating 20 years in broadcasting and in support of his new book, “Fail Up.”  This is as he is hosting his long-running PBS show, “Tavis Smiley,” featured on WHYY and co-hosts “Smiley and West” (with scholar Cornell West), carried by PRI. Then, we’ll hear from Hiram College political science professor JASON JOHNSON about President Obama’s “best week ever,” the Republican presidential candidate field and national politics.
