Michigan State/Oregon game-radio interview with Mr. FishDuck!

Mr. Hondo Carpenter of the website SpartanNation.com contacted me for an interview about the upcoming Michigan State-Oregon football game on September 6th. This website has a network of television and radio stations it is associated with. There are improvements I can make, but considering I am not a radio professional — I thought it went well. My game plan is get interviewed out of state, while I learn this part of promoting the site so no one outside of FishDuck.com readers will hear the “early days” of doing interviews!

This was played this last week in numerous stations within their network that projected the interview into Indiana, Wisconsin and Ohio, as well as in Michigan. It was kinda fun!

I know there are some media professionals out there as readers, and if you have some advice to offer me … please email me —  charles@fishduck.com — and let me know. THANKS.

    You did a great job Charles. Being interviewed, and not knowing what question comes next, can often be an unnerving experience. I think you fielded all questions very well.
    Regarding Phil Knight. I wish you would have added the contributions he has made to the academic side of UofO as well as the other schools he has helped, including Little Brother up north and Stanford etc. I get the feeling that folks outside of our area believe he is a “one trick pony” with his generosity.
    GREAT JOB CHARLES.

      Unnerving doesn’t cover it when you have not done this before. It was a good experience for me to hear the “umms” and “ahhs” to begin to try to improve.

      I especially was caught off-guard by the “Twitter” question…and really fumbled around on that, but it was a good first experience before a large audience in four states.

      I agree with you about Phil….and I need to add that to my notes. (I am preparing notes now to make sure I have less “dead-air” time in the future)

      I also misunderstood his question at the end…he was giving me an opportunity to summarize the site..and I went another direction, but oh well. Like the football up today…I’m learning.

      And boy it sure appears they are as pumped in Michigan as we are for that game. He was very nice and generous to me and our beloved Ducks.

      Thanks Hobo!

    Great work Charles! I’m proud to be a part of a site that isn’t afraid to use several different forms of media to market themselves.

    Good work*.
    Like Hobo I would like to learn more about Uncle Phil. Specifically the role his corporate management experience has had on running “The Oregon Program”.
    My two belle weathers for the season are Marcus’ jawline and the discipline departures from the defense. This year’s photo shows Marcus has become less of a scrawny teen. This physical development means he is tougher and more powerful. The departures on defense indicate Don Pellum is taking an “get with the program or get yourself another team” attitude. It’s not the weight but what you do with it- I think, with this attitude adjustment, our defense will be tougher and more powerful.

    *Talk to some one about good microphones and phone connections. your interviewer had a high nasal voice and an old school belting delivery which could cut through a bad connection. You have a warm, low pitched and friendly voice which got eaten up at times. This should be an easy tech fix.
