What can you tell me about 'Family Feud' host Steve Harvey?
—Joan Bodenheimer, Mount Pleasant, Pa.

The stand-up comedian, 55, was born in Welch, W.Va., and grew up in Cleveland, Ohio. Also host of a nationally syndicated radio program, he starred in the TV series Me and The Boys and The Steve Harvey Show and the movies Love Don’t Cost a Thing and Johnson Family Vacation. His 2009 bestselling book was turned into the recent hit movie, Think Like a Man. Now in marriage number three, the father of four (plus three stepchildren) plans to debut a talk show from Chicago in the fall. “It’s going to be a very positive show with a male perspective to it,” says Harvey. “I’ve made myself a champion for women for a lot of years now, and I think that will come through on the TV show.”
