I dusted off my media appearance skills this week and was quickly reminded how hard it is to wing it on live broadcasts. Live TV and radio shows work best if spontaneous, but spontaneously making comments that are intelligent, accurate, complete, fair, nuanced, composed, comprehensible, thought provoking, unexpected, fresh and maybe even halfway funny is no easy feat. Renewed respect for journalists and other experts who do this regularly. And I recommend that every journalist do this at least once, just to be sure they have an appreciation for how hard it can be on the other side of the Q&A.
HERE’S THE AUDIO OF MY APPEARANCE ON THE JAY BARKER SHOW (2/19/19). WE TALKED ABOUT CHANGES IN SPORTS MEDIA, PAUL FINEBAUM AND, OF COURSE, UNIVERSITY OF ALABAMA FOOTBALL. MY THANKS TO JAY, LARS ANDERSON, ANTONIO LANGHAM AND KERRY ADAMS FOR THE SMART QUESTIONS.
