Welcome to episode 42 of The Connect!

This episode I got a chance to connect with Russ Mitchell.

Russ is an American journalist and news anchor. You may know him from CBS where he was anchor of The Early Show on Saturday and weekend anchor of the CBS Evening News. In 2012, Russ joined WKYC in Cleveland, Ohio as a lead anchor. Our conversation covered many topics including:

• How the storyteller Spalding Gray brought us together
• His career and experience at CBS
• What it was like to work with Dan Rather
• The time he was dissed by James Brown during an interview
• Being live on the air during 9/11
• A conversation that changed his life

    Good interview, Aaron. I thoroughly enjoyed learning more about Russ Mitchell and your conversation with him affirmed for me why I gravitate to WKYC as my local news source.
