I’ve always been a storyteller. In fact, one of my favorite things to do in TV, though I don’t get much time anymore to do it, is to work on features.
You can still tell stories during games, but as a sideline reporter you have to tell them in 20-30 second increments. Not to mention, it’s a challenge to try to get something “unique and different” out of coaches/players during interviews within the game, when you’re really the last person they want to see. 🙂
