Tavis Smiley is a talk show host, author, political commentator, and entrepreneur with a net worth of $10 million. Tavis Smiley has earned his net worth through his career as an aide for the mayor of L.A., as a talk show host for BET Talk and the host of The Tavis Smiley Show.

Tavis Smiley (pronounced /'taev?s/; born September 13, 1964) is a talk show host, author, liberal political commentator, entrepreneur, advocate and philanthropist. Smiley was born in Gulfport, Mississippi, and grew up in Kokomo, Indiana. After attending Indiana University, he worked during the late 1980s as an aide to Tom Bradley, the mayor of Los Angeles.
