NAACP Image Award Honorees include Bono, Bill Cosby and Soledad O�Brien

LOS ANGELES, CA (February 5, 2007) LL Cool J is set to host The 38th NAACP Image Awards, which will air live on Friday, March 2 (8:00-10:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed) on FOX, it was announced today by Vicangelo Bulluck, executive producer of the telecast.

�We are pleased and honored to have LL Cool J host our first live telecast,� said Bulluck. �His humor, intelligence and incredible talent will make the awards an exciting evening to remember.�

After releasing his first hit, �I Can't Live Without My Radio,� in 1985 when he was just 17 years old, LL quickly developed his own unique style. His first two albums, �Radio� and �Bigger and Deffer,� made him a star, but �Mama Said Knock You Out� established him as one of hip-hop's genuine superstars. He will be releasing his next album, �Exit 13,� in May.

In addition to his music success, LL Cool J starred in his own television sitcom, �In the House,� and appeared in several films, including �S.W.A.T.� with Samuel L. Jackson and Colin Farrell, �Last Holiday� with Queen Latifah, Oliver Stone's �Any Given Sunday� and �Deliver Us from Eva� with Gabrielle Union. LL is also an accomplished author ; his fitness book, �LL Cool J's Platinum Workout,� is currently on the New York Times best sellers list.

As previously announced, three outstanding individuals will be honored during the NAACP Image Awards telecast, including CNN anchor Soledad O�Brien, with the President�s Award; legendary comedian/actor/author and past Image Awards winner Bill Cosby will be inducted into the Image Awards Hall of Fame; and renowned musician and activist Bono will receive the NAACP Chairman�s Award.
