Richard Smith

News Director
TalkTime
Monday 12:00am – 1:00am

The Wakeup Call
Friday 7:00am – 8:00am

Richard J. Smith is the long-time host of TalkTime, a live on-air talk show that provides KAZI’s listeners with a “talk show alternative” where callers can discuss topics they might not be able to address anywhere else. TalkTime is billed as the “program that listens to you.” TalkTime went on the air in July 1992.

As one of several interim co-hosts of the Wakeup Call since March 2006, Richard J. Smith brings 15 years of live, call-in talk show experience to the airwaves. The emphasis Fridays is on presenting an open forum for any topic the audience members want to discuss. Smith’s philosophy that the “phone calls make the show” carries over from TalkTime which airs from Midnight to 1:00am on Monday mornings.
