With a background in trial law, Smerconish’s presentations provide audiences with balanced, though-provoking reporting on today’s biggest issues, that ensure both sides of the coin are heard. Smerconish has interviewed five U.S. presidents including Jimmy Carter, George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama, as well as vice presidents Al Gore, Dick Cheney and Joe Biden.

In addition to hosting his own programs, Smerconish has been a frequent guest on other major news programs, such as NBC’s Today Show, The Colbert Report and Real Time with Bill Maher. He is the author of seven books, including two New York Times’ best-sellers, and his latest book, “Clowns to the Left of Me, Jokers to the Right: American Life in Columns,” was released in 2018.

“Michael Smerconish has gained national recognition as an independent and moderate voice in our political media,” says RVIA President Frank Hugelmeyer. “As the RV industry prepares for critical meetings on Capitol Hill, we look forward to hearing his insights on the current climate and how it might affect our industry moving forward.”

Registration is currently open for RVs Move America Week. This event, set for June 2-6 at the Mayflower Hotel in Washington, D.C., brings RV industry colleagues together to discuss current issues affecting the industry in meetings with Congressional and Administration officials. This year an updated RVs Move America Economic Impact study will be released on Capitol Hill in conjunction with the House and Senate RV Caucuses.
