NSN Podcast: Giger’s best interview of the year

This is one my favorite interviews I’ve ever done in 11 years on the radio. It’s with my good friend Luke Hetrick, a Hollidaysburg native and Saint Francis alum who’s now a TV sports broadcaster in Orlando.

Luke was with me for nearly a year on my old radio show as “Intern Boy,” then he branched out and got a Master’s degree from Sacred Heart before embarking on a sports broadcasting career in Georgia and now Florida.

I’m from Arkansas, then moved to Virginia and finally to Pennsylvania. So Luke and I have a lot in common when it comes to finding our own path, not only in the sports media business, but also in our personal lives.

In this interview, Luke and I discuss the value in getting out and seeing the country, finding your own path, experiencing different things and different cultures — all with a sports angle and how it can help you see things a little differently.

This clip is from my show, “Sports Central with Cory Giger,” which airs weekdays from 3-4 p.m. on WRTA in Altoona.

    “Intern Boy”, as we named Luke affectionately, has made us all proud. The open minded views he expressed during this interview are refreshing to hear from anyone from this area.
