Richard Portis threw a surprise birthday party for Pittsburgh radio legend Bev Smith at CJ’s in the Strip on Saturday, March 8..

Portis said, “I have known Bev for about 40 years as we all have known Bev for 40 years. She is a shero and should be celebrated.”

“I am floored that Richard did this. He called me and said lets go for a drink and asked for me to call some friends and I said no that’s ok but when I got here I was just floored,” said Smith.

“It brought me to tears when I heard them say I am a Pittsburgh Shero and I should be celebrated.”
