Robert "Rob" Redding Jr. is an award-winning syndicated talk radio show host and best-selling author, known to his listeners as "America's Independent Voice." Rob is also founding editor and publisher of the award-winning, first subscriber supported, and third oldest black news aggregation Web site, ReddingNewsReview.com.
Redding began his first years in broadcasting as Tony Smoove. (He was given the name by his program director). Smoove was a top-rated hip-hop radio personality in Macon, Ga. – a city that is famous for another family member, Otis Redding. As a radio personality, he was first to record multi-platinum selling rapper Bubba Sparxxx - on Redding’s album "Tony Smoove's Aircheck Volume 1." Sometime after leaving music radio for talk, he became one of the few, if not only, black program directors of a mainstream talk radio station, KMLB-AM in Monroe, La. from August 2009 to August 2010. Around that same time, he became the narrator of the film "Stay Brady Stay", which has been screened at numerous movie festivals and is scheduled to air on Louisiana Public Broadcasting for three years. Redding is the founder of BlackTalkers.com, a Web site covering the black talk radio community. He has also been a frequent guest on the Fox News Channel, National Public Radio and C-SPAN.
