PBS renews Tavis Smiley through 2015

By Andrew Lapin

PBS has renewed its commitment to Tavis Smiley for another two years, keeping the talk show on public TV through 2015.

“The highlight for me is surviving” as a late-night talk show, Smiley told the Associated Press. The program, which tapes in Los Angeles, will face less competition in booking guests once NBC’s The Tonight Show moves to New York in February, he noted.
