Less than a month after being fired from PBS for alleged sexual misconduct, Tavis Smiley has a new gig.
The Upside With Tavis Smiley, will be streamed online and shown on The Word Network, a religious-oriented cable and satellite channel directed at black viewers. In addition the 53-year-old announced a five-city town hall tour in Chicago, Los Angeles, New Orleans, Washington and San Francisco. The topic: relationships in the workplace.
He also announced plans for a book and online course in Leading by Listening. The Upside With Tavis Smiley is expected to start this spring.
