Using robust on-line recruitment from Steveharvey.com and daily listener call-ins, the show is interactive and lively and provides an inside look into the makings of one of the country's most innovative and successful morning radio shows.

With the debut of THE STEVE HARVEY PROJECT, Steve Harvey and CENTRIC continue to lead the way in bringing original entertainment that makes an impact on the culture and lifestyle of today's African-American and diverse audiences.

About Steve Harvey

Steve Harvey began doing stand-up comedy in the mid-1980s, which eventually led to a long stint as host of "It's Showtime at the Apollo" and multiple TV sitcoms as well as movie roles, including: "Me and The Boys" on ABC from 1994-1995, "The Steve Harvey Show" on the WB from 1996-2002 and "Steve Harvey's Big Time Challenge" on the WB from 2003-2005. Throughout his success, Harvey has never lost sight of his passion for stand-up comedy. Touring as one of the Kings of Comedy alongside Cedric The Entertainer, the late Bernie Mac and D.L. Hughley in 1997, the immediate success of the tour led to the taping of one of the most successful comedy DVDs in history - "The Original Kings of Comedy" - directed by Spike Lee. He has also released numerous comedy specials. Currently hosting "Family Feud", where ratings have increased more than 40 percent, Harvey also hosts the nationally syndicated "Steve Harvey Morning Show", which airs in over 60 markets and has approximately 7 million listeners from 6-10 AM PM*. His first book, Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man was released January 27, 2009. The runaway bestseller quickly became a relationship classic, resonating with audiences around the world. His newest book, Straight Talk, No Chaser will be released on December 7, 2010. With a wide range of fans from kids to adults of all ages, whether reaching people as a comedian, radio personality, author, TV host, actor, entrepreneur or philanthropist, Harvey remains true to uplifting others through humor, sharing enriching words and actions that enliven everyday life.
