Many honors have crossed my paths over the last 34 years in this business of media covering sports, such as first Minnesota reporter to interview icon Michael Jordan of the Chicago Bulls live in 1993 on Twin Cities sports (KFAN) radio on a game day, and first Black man to host a live, three-hour radio show Monday through Friday, 12-3 on KFAN. I hosted then-Vikings head coach Dennis Green’s weekly radio network show for eight years. I’m the first sports writer in history to cover his own son in a Super Bowl.
