If you've noticed in the sports world, interviews can be bland. This is due to different elements. A player's personality is a big one, plus athletes are taught by organizations to be very generic. When you have either one or both of these elements then you don't get the answers to questions you the listener are searching for from the person being interviewed. Those two elements are tossed out the window in this exclusive sit down interview with former Louisville basketball star, Preston Knowles.
This part 1 of a very honest individual who opens up and answers every question we asked him with great detail. Enjoy the interview, and enjoy the stories. Listen to part 2 as well!

We all can breath now. Even with a 1-0 lose to Germany, USA moves on to the round of 16 in the World Cup to play Belgium, I hope you're enjoying this as much as I am right now! I believe many of us are in the same position. You don't know everything that is going on, but you're enjoying the ride! Let's enjoy it a little while longer!
I spent the day at KY Speedway where it was "testing" day for drivers competing in the Nationwide Series Race this upcoming Saturday. It was my first time visiting the speedway and earning my very first "credential". I definitely felt special :)
The Quaker State 400 will be ran this Saturday 6/28/14. Today I heard from Nationwide Drivers, Ryan Blaney, Johny Sauter, and Ty Dillon. The focus was to get capture their perspective on the "roughest course in racing": The KY Speedway. As this was my first time at the race track, I learned that the bumps and rough spots make the KY Speedway a unique racing venue.
Stay tuned this week, I will have updates and more pictures from each day on the track leading up to the big race on Saturday. Follow me on Twitter @AprilWLXG or like our facebook page "Sunday Mornings with Eric and April".
In continuation with our show this past Sunday, my feature guest in this blog is Chris Lofton! I not only got the opportunity to chat with him in studio on Sunday, but yesterday I ventured to Maysville to visit the basketball camp him and Darius Miller held at the Boys and Girls club. It was a pleasure to have been invited to the camp, and as an intern currently at WKYT I was excited and eager to take the trip.
The camp held 2 sessions, morning from 8-1, and afternoon from 1-4. I went to the afternoon session and was immediately approached by Chris, asking me how I was doing. He was such a nice guy to have in studio, but in his element on the basketball court he's surprisingly that same person. The celebrity status you would think a person with his history and success would have is just absent. He is actually a normal guy who like myself, simply loves the game of basketball.
This was only the second year of the camp and as expected was a huge success. They had approximately 150 campers in both sessions and the kids enjoyed the company of towering heroes, Darius Miller and Chris Lofton. I was honored to be there and witness the joy this camp brought to so many children.
Take a look at my pictures and of course the selfie I had to get with Chris! He was more than happy to let me get one with him! Have a great week!
To most, yesterday may not seem historic but in the sense of media coverage, yesterday should have a chapter dedicated to it in a sports media history book. The landscape as we know it, when it comes to coverage of a university is about to change drastically. UK and JMI will have so much power, and have so many outlets, you the card carrying member of Big Blue Nation will have so much in front of you, you won't know what to do!
The Cardinals and the Commodores are currently in a rebuilding phase, and in this contest the Cardinals may be a little more advanced. Keep an eye on both of these programs as they will progress greatly in the years to come!
