Next to the late, great James Brown, Steve Harvey may be the hardest working man in show business. Harvey, who started as a stand-up comedian in the late 1980’s, has gone from playing small-town juke joints where there were more hecklers than audience, to obtaining one of the most coveted honors a broadcaster can achieve. Congratulations are in order because just a few hours ago today Steve Harvey was inducted into the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) Hall of Fame.
Harvey proved he had that special something when he served as one of the longest running hosts of “Show Time at the Apollo”. Currently, he is host of one of the most-loved game shows “The Family Feud," has a popular daytime talk show “The Steve Harvey Show," and eases the morning commute for millions with “The Steve Harvey Morning Show”. In May 2013 Harvey was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Harvey joins some illustrious company with his induction into the NAB Hall of Fame. Past inductees include Jack Benny, Paul Harvey, Orson Welles, Ronald Regan, Wolfman Jack, Tom Joyner, and Betty White, among many others. A complete list of past inductees can be found on the NAB website.
And Harvey has no plans to slow down. Be on the lookout for part II of his hilarious book-turned-move “Think Like a Man II”, scheduled for release June 20, 2014. You can get a sneak peek at the trailer here.
