On the Bubble: a groundbreaking collaboration
Before launching On The Bubble during fall 2015, I had only done a few radio spots and a short stint on the Doug Gottlieb Show. I loved the rush of a live interview and the pressure of coming up with a thoughtful answer on the spot. So when my friend and fellow former Daily Tar Heel sports editor Powell Latimer called me up and asked if I wanted to cohost a podcast with him, I didn't hesitate. Plenty of sports podcasts have cropped up recently and we wanted to bring something new to the table and fill a void in our market. The result is a collaboration between the Durham Herald-Sun and Greensboro News and Record discussing both the Atlantic Coast Conference and the Mid Eastern Athletic Conference. Since launching On the Bubble, so named because the teams we cover are frequently on the bubble of the NCAA basketball tournament and college football playoff (Hi, UNC football), we've developed a stronger listener base and added our podcast to the iTunes store.
