Syndicated radio personality Rickey Smiley will host the NAB Marconi Radio Awards Dinner and Show on September 7 at the 2017 Radio Show. Produced by the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) and the Radio Advertising Bureau (RAB), the Radio Show will be held September 5-8 at the JW Marriott in Austin, Texas. Smiley is host of "The Rickey Smiley Morning Show," which is heard in over 60 markets and is distributed by Reach Media Inc.

"Rickey Smiley doesn't stick to the script, so we're not sure what he'll do as host, but be assured that it will be very, very funny," said NAB Executive Vice President of Radio John David. "Get a good seat at the NAB Marconi Radio Awards and expect the unexpected."

In addition to radio and stand-up comedy, Smiley appears on the television show "Dish Nation" and TV One's "Rickey Smiley For Real," which chronicles his radio career and personal life as a single father. He's also author of the upcoming book "Stand By Your Truth: And Then Run For Your Life," set to be released this fall.
