Major props to Alvin Brown from Lexington, who wrote this awesome letter to the editor to the Herald-Leader. Alvin called in to the show to let us know it’s in today’s edition, otherwise, we never would have known:
Charles Ramsey, the rescuer of the three women missing for a decade in Cleveland, was in Kentucky several weeks ago.
When the rescue story broke, the national media flocked to get interviews with Ramsey, including CNN’s Anderson Cooper.
However, the best interview of Ramsay that I heard was over Kentucky Sports Radio on Matt Jones’ popular sports radio talk show.
After the interview, it dawned on me that a sportscaster had just conducted a great news interview with a national hero.
When sportscasters start beating those who supposedly report the news, like Jones did, it becomes apparent that media outlets should consider using sportscasters to report news events.
KSR salutes you, Alvin.
