Hank Aaron, Baseball’s Home Run King Who Defied Racism, Dies at 86

"Unfortunately, on this Friday, I start with some really sad news. Incredibly sad news with reports that Henry Hank Aaron has passed away at the age of 86. Now when you talk about Titans when you talk about icons when you talk about heroes You better talk about Hank Aaron. Because Hank was all of that, and he was so much more. When Hank Aaron was a rookie in March of 1954. He got to start an exhibition game against the Red Sox, Terrance Moore wrote in the A. J. C quote. Already possessed of dramatic timing. At the age of 20, the rookie promptly drilled a ball that carry the wall flew over a roller trailers parked outside the Sarasota Park and reverberated so loudly in the Red Sox clubhouse. That the great Ted Williams emerged, as Aaron recalled quote wanting to know who would Woz who could make a bat sound that way when it hit a baseball end quote. Of Teddy ballgame. If Ted Williams is coming out of the clubhouse to find out who could make a bat and a ball sound like that, then that's pretty much all you need to know about Hank Aaron's greatness. But there is more a lot more like this moment. Non 7 14. Here's the pitch by downing swinging. There's a drive in the left center field that ball is gonna pay. Outta here. It's done. It's 7 15. There's a new home run champion of all time on it's Henry Aaron. Works. They're going. Henry Aaron is coming around third, his teammates right home plate and listen to this crowd. One of the greatest moments in the history of the game. Hank Aaron passing Babe Ruth as the all time home run King. And then, of course, Aaron would go on to break the all time record for home runs. But if that's all you think about when you think about Hank Aaron, you are missing out. It was so much more to Aaron than that. He's the all time leader and runs batted in the all time leader in extra base hits the all time leader in total bases. He's fourth and run, scored third and hits Nothing about that. The man who was known for home runs is third all time and hits Pirro's Ty Cobb and then Hank Aaron. But 20 time All Star three time Gold Glove winner, a two time batting champ. Ah first ballot Hall family. I mean, similar to Wayne Gretzky and that it's easy to forget just how good he was at everything. Is Ernie Johnson said quote. There's always been a great comparison between William A's and Hank Aaron. I think a Los Angeles writer said it best when we were playing out there and the guy wrote quote Hank Aaron does everything that Willie Mays does. But his cap doesn't fall off.

Biden chooses Boston Mayor Walsh as Labor secretary

"Landscape is about to undergo some major changes in Boston. Who better to talk about it. Then WBC news radio nightside host Dan Ray Morning, Dan Good morning, Charlie. Happy Sunday morning to you Happy Sunday morning to you, too. We've got Marty Walsh, nominated for Labor Secretary By Joe Biden. We've got Kim Janey will succeed Marty Walsh upon nomination, and then we've got Michelle Woo Andrea Campbell in the mix running for mayor. What's next? Well, I think what's next is gonna be Boston Police commissioner Really gross announcing sometime as early as later this week that he has decided to throw his hat into the ring as well, Um s so It's very close to really gross reached out to me last night and told me that he is the police commissioner's 90% of the way. They're just checking off with a couple of family members to make sure that everybody is on board. On that we will have another candidate who does not have political experience per se, like flying law enforcement officer Lifetime law enforcement officer who has risen through the rags. I happen to think Probably Mayor Walsh is single, most effective appointment during his administration as the as the police commissioner about to decide that he's going to try to take one step further and, um, add mayor to his resume. With the lack of political experience, Dan is that beneficial in this day and age or is it hurtful? I think it's very exciting is very beneficial to girls with the Charlie because I think that people have looked at him truly is a public servant. A lot of politicians will save me a public servants. They're public servants. They're public servants, but what they're doing is they're looking for political office, maybe to become a stepping stone to another political office. I think really, grass is very committed to the city of Boston. The people no city of Boston, he started great job is the police commissioner. We had the good fortune of having some fine police commissioner's A Davis, of course, comes to mind. Uh, the heavens brothers and Willie Grass has continued that great tradition of law enforcement and I think that he knows the city as well as anybody. He's been around this city. And law enforcement of the city of Boston is is a very important issue, because frankly, Boston has done so well in that area than other other major cities around the country. I think I think that he's a natural, and I think you'll be a very strong political candidate. First time out of the box. Do you think, with William Grass jumping into the fray? Will that keep others who may have thought about running for mayor on the sidelines? I think it would force other people think about it. But I certainly don't think that the announced candidates Michelle will where Andre Campbell or maybe another one or two would back away because I'm sure they will look at him and say, Well, he's a police commission. He's not a politician, but I think frankly, that is gonna win no to his benefit being a police commission and someone with hands on experience. In every community in every every nook and cranny of Boston. Well, we'll have to see what it's a big step. Obviously, for someone you gotta. He has to raise funds to run a campaign. I'm also told that he has received a lot of support. From members significant people within the Boston community. You know, you may want to call them the people who are the backbone of the community business people who have indicated to him that they would like to see him run as well. So I think he has. He's got a wellspring of support of the community. That is that he hasn't even tap yet. And I think I think he will be a formidable candidate. If he decides to actually make this announcement that I'm told he is 90% certain he will make some time. Perhaps as early as later this week. Alright,

He will be doing a stars movie and it will be along with doctor. Strange to doctor strange in the multi verse of madness Writer michael waldron who. We found out falls upon us on twitter. I don't know if your listener. Mr waldron who also is doing loki. Assure star wars movie with kevin feige listener. Let's let's get him on the pot did bring him. Dougherty to is a producer.

We'll talk about anything. But he's a star wars movie tapped to right. He's got a big deal now. Overall deal with disney obviously that's three separate entities for disney awesome. Good for him grads to that And then of course kevon foggy called the see him doing a star wars. Always kinda rumors could kevin feige takeover kathleen kennedy ever step down or she just kind of ran out of interest in doing. It seems it's more fabric baloney thing that's going to happen. Seems as though they're the ones who are going to be kind of leading the charge leading the way though catherine kennedy still there obviously as they've Just completely overhauled. How they're going to look at star wars mostly through series now with some movies And the other star wars news. This this is more of a rumor. It's been shot down that route donor. Junior won't play admiral thron however they've said that robert junior has been looked at for a star wars role in the future which makes sense because now stars and sitting that marvel thing with there's so many future properties they're gonna probably have some actors and actors that people are like. Oh that's that's quite the big name That would be a big one forever. Junior joining star wars would be quite the big name and actually. I don't think he would be a great thrown thrown of an intriguing. I still think. Speaking of the mickelson's i still think wars. Nicholson just play the character. He voiced willie because he was just the perfect of i can't think of another thrown voice But to cool pieces of star wars news here both marvel related. I think we should call them I think what a coin now for. This is the f. Cubed baloney favreau and fi. so the f. cubed alliance i think is gonna make a lot of great stores content in the future and i think that the one thing that Foggy is really going to add to this. As far as the stars movie universe cohesion right. The vendors undertaking is an insane thing. Really in retrospect like we look back on him. Like i made a bunch from the cool right but like to kind of loop together. All his moves into cohesive matter and not only that but like kind of build and make the franchise so much better as went along. I think is extremely impressive. And the fact that he's able to make these movies without feeling superhero fatigue is also even more impressive. And that's where. I think marvel in and star wars are kind of in the same lane as far as like you know when it will. When is it too much like when you down content. I think he he knows what he's doing. In that

The Only Counter To Expectations Is Communication

"William shakespeare is attributed with the quote. That expectations are the root of all holiday. Which makes sense. People have expectations. Those expectations aren't mid end up being disappointed and the only possibility. I think you have of countering. Expectations is to communicate in fact probably to over communicate because a lot of us think we understand. What are people won't understand what our customers want. We understand what our employees want. But we never really can be sure and so the only possibility that you have countering that heartache of countering that not delivering on those expectations is to communicate an example. That happened this week where we were talking about the bonuses for this year and it seemed pretty obvious to me that nobody would possibly expect a bonus but as it was pointed out to me. Well actually there were a couple of people. Thought we might. We might be getting a bonus this year and so the only way to jump in early and counter those disappointed expectations or unmet. Expectations is to communicate the fact that you not be transparent about all the reasons why and just communicate the fact that. I'm not able to meet your expectation. If in fact that was your expectation so just a little lesson in in transparency in communication. Because that's the only way really that. I think you'll at least have a chance of avoiding failing to meet those expectations which will result in as willie. Shakespeare said heartache. Already that is for today. I do thank you for your time. And i will be back again tomorrow.

The Story of Auld Lang Syne

"Well when this time of year rolls around you probably will hear one song and one song in particular seemingly over and over again. Quick note here. I was listening to my christmas traditional songs. And i kept hearing it. But what song am i talking about. Well i just told you old. Elaine sign it does have a rather big nostalgia meaning to it and along with it here in the united states. A bit of sadness and usually marks an emotional scene or we action. The song. old lang sign was originally written in scottish. When taken apart and put back together again. An- actually means old long sense and is translated yet again to mean all times sake or for the sake of old times this song that is mostly sung and means the emotional conclusion to another year. And don't we need that. It also means that one must remember people from their past and raise a toast to them. Originally it was written many many years ago as a scottish celebration song. Old lang zayn is actually a scottish language. Written by robert burns in seventeen eighty eight and set to the tune of a traditional folk song. But did you know that. In the netherlands. It is a soccer anthem and in japan. It is a song about firefly's and and south korea. It was the national anthem until nineteen forty eight. It is known as being easily adaptable and mostly all musical styles. That is why it is so cool but at its core it is well known and many countries especially in the english speaking world. It's traditional use. Being to bid farewell to the old year at the stroke of midnight on new year's eve it is also sung at funerals graduations and as a farewell or ending to other asians the international scouting movement in many countries uses it to close jamborees and other functions and a little note here when i was watching the crown on netflix day. Sung it when they said goodbye to the prime minister. Certainly most of us know the song old lang zayn but to quote from the first stanza of the english version of the james watson ballad. Here it goes should be aware since be forgot and never thought upon the flames of love extinguished and fully past and gone is thy sweetheart now grown so cold that loving breast of nine the thou cast never once reflect on old lang zayn in scotland. It is common practice that everyone joins hands with the person next to them. To form a great circle around the dance floor at the beginning of the last verse. Everyone crosses their arms across their breast so that the right hand reaches out to the neighbor on the left side and vice versa win the tune ends everyone rushes to the middle while still holding hands when the circle is re established everyone turns under the arms to end up facing outward with hands still joined in countries other than scotland. The hands are often crossed from the beginning of the song at variance with scottish custom. And did you know. The scottish practice was demonstrated by queen elizabeth second at the millennium dome celebrations for the year. Two thousand some press outlets berated her for not properly crossing her arms. She was unaware that she was incorrectly. Following the scottish tradition and because of its easy tune and melody it was also used as a song to signify for the war to end having the title. I wish the war was over and it was a popular anti-slavery song entitled fling out. The anti slavery flag both were using old anxiety as the basis for those songs. If you listen closely you can hear the song all lang sign and many movies too. Well did you know that these movies are we willie winkle a nineteen thirty seven. Shirley temple movie when her character sings to console a dying soldier. Mr smith goes to washington the nineteen thirty nine movie. Ocean's eleven the original of nineteen sixty as background music and the poseidon adventure one of my favorites that was made in nineteen seventy two ghostbusters and nineteen eighty nine. When harry met sally in nineteen eighty nine as well forrest gump in nineteen ninety four and elf and two thousand and three and most notably the very last song that is in the movie. It's a wonderful life with jimmy stewart. It is after all probably the best feel good ending in a classic movie ever with plenty of emotion for the main character at the last scene of the movie which brings george bailey the main character to tears as he acknowledges how great life really is and it is always at the stroke of midnight composer guy lombardi would play it on the radio and continued the tradition for fifty years afterwards. Dick clark took it up to play at the stroke of midnight on. Dick clark's new year's rocking eve. Every year and new york city as the big ball dropped at the stroke of midnight but after dick clark retired from the show ryan. Seacrest did the same at the stroke of midnight every year. They all had something in common with playing the song. It was an remembrance of those that came before and at the same time to mark the new year. All the fans and celebrators would sing along to the classic song so this year twenty twenty when the clock strikes. Twelve a m sing along to this classic song. Even if you don't know all the words we are indeed saying goodbye to twenty twenty

Second stimulus check: Will you get $2,000, $600 or nothing?

Second stimulus check: Will you get $2,000, $600 or nothing?

"Willie or won't he? President Trump is signaling a potential veto of a massive coronavirus relief package, with many Americans hoping for relief. Nina's Day. Look, court quit. Terra is following it for ABC News and spoke with Cuomo's Bill O'Neill. It is this is not a simple as it appears. On the surface, it seems many Democrats are lining up with the president's calls for bigger relief checks for Americans. That's right. So we saw a House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, shortly after President Trump put out that Twitter video in which he signaled he would not be signing the deal and beat Expressed dissatisfaction with the deal specifically when it comes to the stimulus checks. He's like those stimulus checks to be increased from the current $600 to $2000. Shortly after that. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi did release a statement saying that she and Democrats were on board with that, she said, Let's do it. Democrats all along has been pushing to spend more money here. Her initial figure that she did Put forward was at $1.3 Trillion proposal. It was Republicans that have been opposed to spending even more money. So it is. It is whole thing. This whole kind of twist. You know this new development of President Trump signaling he won't On this deal really is, I think, Put Republicans in a tricky spot. And weirdly you do have Democrats now align themselves with President Trump. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is putting forward A not an amendment. They can't actually amend this deal because it has already passed both chambers but the House and Senate so she's putting forward a standalone bill that would need unanimous consent. You could be introducing that on the House floor on Thursday would need to unanimously passed. The House unanimously passed the Senate that Seems unlikely to happen. But Democrats do support sending out more money and it's going to put Republicans in a tricky spot is going to put this deal would have to pass Thehyperfix again unanimously so anyone Republican could come forward and and opposed the bill and essentially to doubt the bill. Even if the bill were to pass the House. That same thing would have to happen in the Senate, so all senators would have to be on board and Republican senators have repeatedly expressed You know, concerned with something out large checks of Republicans find themselves in a situation where they're going to have to publicly break with the president. Is there any sense of this new alliance with the president and the Democrats could help withstand a veto override effort. Yes, it was interesting. Actually, The bill was passed with a veto proof majority in both chambers, both the House and the Senate. So even if the president does veto the bill, the bill could still pass. The real concern here is that the right now and have where things stand is that the Senate hasn't actually said the president, the bill, they're still going through kind of technicalities there. Once the Senate wants the president gets the bill. He could then decide to veto it again. He hasn't outright said that he would veto it. But he certainly indicating that that's a possibility that the president vetoes the bill. He then has to send it back Torus, and that's one Congress would override his veto, and that's the whole process. In another self, But the president could kind of hang on to the bill. And that's where the concern is that one he could hang onto the bill. But also to that he might just think this is a whole process might just take too long. And remember, this bill is part of the funding bills. So the code 19 bill is part of a larger funding bill that so called omnibus deal that has until the 28th of December to pass if they're not able to pass that. Well by then, then the government will shut down. But the concern is that this could ultimately worst case scenario. Kick off the government.

"Includes the mayor of san francisco and the piano. Vian paired juggler using. It's gonna rain on us. It never comes down willie brown but one time he played a senator not really unlike himself in a very famous film directed by the very famous francis. Ford coppola and starring. Well too many people to name how. 'bout godfather three. What was that like well that came about in a very unusual way. it was. I think nine thousand nine hundred eighty nine somewhere in that neighborhood. It was being shock in rome. Just outside rome to be exact in france's ghulam known for years Was having all kinds of trouble with the guy that he had planned. Senator and a black guy was playing the senator and he kept yelling at the black guy apparently asked the question presented the way willie brown would present it any kept pounding a guy that way and little a whole finally the guy turned mccain exasperated as artistic. People are sometimes inclined to do. And he did say mr francis. Why don't you just use willie brown and not me any walked off the set and it's small part but it's with al pacino mystical to the franks. Thank you very much contribution on the win and we need your help on. Sam wallace's candidacy for judge. You can use judge thank you. Nobody could play a willie brown type politician better than willie brown and honestly he's more of a mythic character in real life than on screen. Mary jordan interviewer could have listened to him for hours. Tell stories from back in the day but she also wanted to hear his take on. Today's issues there's a lot of talk these days about the demise of california the once great state you housing's too expensive. There's millions of acres that have gone up in fire. There's homelessness to a degree. We've never seen. What do you think about the state of california as we sit here and twenty twenty. It's not as good as it should be clearly. We need to be four more attentive to the differences existing and our system in our society. When i walked into san francisco. Nine thousand nine hundred fifty one. You could not become a police officer of your black. you could not become firemen. If you're a black you did not have access to civil service. There was no black person holding public office. We did all those things over the twenty or so years from fifty one to seventy one so and we were focused on achieving that goal. I believe the whole issue of poverty can be adjusted in the same fashion. I believe the issue of drug addiction can be done. The same factual alcoholism can be done in the same fashion but it requires an incredible dedication but whole of people to go from one thousand nine hundred fifty one. When willie brown. I arrived in san francisco to one thousand nine hundred seventy five. When george mosconi got elected to the may of san francisco. We have some bottomless things. But what's the difference now. It's very clear the problems now as it as it was in the fifties and sixties is the difference that you were able to work with republicans. Famously got along with ronald reagan and arnold schwarzenegger when they were governors. I mean what is a better example in those. You understand that democrats did not elect me speaker democrats participated. I got fifty one. Votes forty-one required. I got fifty one votes speakership out of eighty twenty eight of those votes from republicans. There were thirty. Two republicans twenty eight of them voted for me. There was forty eight democrats. only twenty. Three of them voted for me. So for my ascendancy to the speakership job which i l twice as long as any other human being epa in the history of california the best anybody ever done on that score was seven years i did fourteen and a half years as speaker. The combination of republicans and democrats the whole membership for the first time in the history california elevated me to the speakership. Are we ever going to go back to those days where someone s totally and completely necessary the business of simply being of one political party in a one political persuasion does work. You've got to be prepared to have a problem. Addressed in a way that affects all people whether they're republicans. Democrats green party members independence. You've got to do it. In such a way that in embraces the life and the response for money and that takes some real dedicated energy you personally demonstrating your willingness to do it but let me ask you about homelessness. Because they're ten cities now all over the city. And in your inauguration you famously fed thousands of homeless people so homelessness is not a new problem but it seems to be bigger and more visible is there. What's the way forward for san francisco. How did this get better bill. More housing and stop allowing it to be built on about nonprofits put prophet making into the house building business with the obligation.

"These days. Willie brown no longer needs shield. He's eighty six and has been retired from politics since two thousand four when term limits broughton and to his tenure as mayor of san francisco. But he's still strolls the streets of the city every day. He says four or five miles shaking hands and greeting people with those is that can light up a room and he still works As a lawyer as a public speaker and as a political columnist for the san francisco chronicle his eyesight is failing him now but he has the energy of a much younger man and his just as dashing as ever. when. Mary jordan arrived for her interview a few weeks ago at the rooftop of the battery a private club in san francisco. She realized she had to dive in with a question about his attire. The the suit he was wearing demanded it. I love this line that you said about. I've spent more time in the closet than any straight man. Wait a minute. let me say that again. I've let me try that more time in the closet. That any other straight man in san francisco. Where do you mean by that. So when i moved out here from mineola. texas. My uncle took me to howard's a clothing store on market street in san francisco in bought me my first blue serge suit but a light blue shirt and a yellow tie. My uncle was a dandy. He literally lived clothing and cars his name. It's and i think. I got my interest in clothing from him. And then when i ended up being able to afford something other than brooks brother's suits as a shopping and we'll spanish food. What was called brioni. I spent hours and hours weekend and week out shopping but clothe him in a salesman. A lotta time shopping for clothing. So the comment about all that time for straight guy in the closet. That's the reference. Well this morning at this beautiful morning in san francisco. You have an amazing suit. On how many suits do you have. How many pairs of shoes and hats. You're famous hats far too many of each for example when i got dresses when i went through three different outfits before i came to the conclusion that this particular outfit. It's looks english and its fabric. It's italian design. It's patch pocket so that it has enough casual about it. It's heavy enough but not so heavy that it will be uncomfortable during the course of this interview. So it's online for all those things are important to me. I went through three different outfits. And i'll put them on with the shoes shirts and i finally sound on what you see when i look at it i think. Wow that's thousands of dollars you know more wet. It is thousands of totally believe but his love of clothing in his own words is a sickness and the pandemic has not stopped him from pursuing sartorial splendor. It's really important that you take time just as important that you take time. Understand the subject matter toge- much of the facts as you can absorb to review what other people have said. It's no different in your wearing a barrel. The width of your child with a beep pants. Many people have pants to date. Make sure your hugest. Everything is consistent the detail that you just went through about your appearance. That's how you're also known about politics when you're trying to tackle a problem solve something. Can you walk through. How your approach for political power. How much of it is behind the scenes and kind of thinking layer hair. Who you have to talk to. Who do you have to bring in the room. Well first and foremost in the world of politics you've got to know then no matter how bright you are able you. Are you have to develop very quickly the ability to listen and not talk. Listen you will come to a much better conclusion if hear everything and everybody and in particular if you do your response at the end so that you can include the best wisdom coming from others. As part of the approach you believe is appropriate to address the issue. That's really the way the political process ought to work. And when that happens you'd find that more often than not you'll be tapped as the person on to provide the leadership on the particularly. You also gotta be prepared very quickly understand. You cannot take credit for everything in fact it would be better. If you didn't take credit for anything you might do it. I e you might solve the problem. You may come up with the but whatever reason don't take credit in the world of politics. We politicians are so eager to gain the benefit in the public vote side based on our alleged performance. That if you constantly take the credit you rob others of the opportunity to assert their participation in what that participation really meant when you look back and all the things you've done in politics what do you want your legacy to be instead of california. I just want people to remember that i served. That's nothing absolutely nothing. And i love nothing better than the have my family across the board proud of the fact that i served quite a few things have been named after you a school and even a span of the bridge. When you heard about that what did you think. I post it because i don't really wish t have people vote up on me on a purposes particularly other politicians and you only get those names with other politicians passing it on. I don't wish to be examined in that way. I'd rather have people reflect.

"You've got this you know. And then and then as I got older we visit. We had a couple of really fun visits and he had his high school sweetheart was at school with him so we had known. Stena. Yeah so he married high school sweetheart. Yeah so we actually. We met in Sixth Grade Middle School in Jersey. We were friends and we started dating junior in high school. The short version of the story is she wanted to go to. Uva We both got into vanderbilt which was much easier to get into back then need to stipulate that she wanted to go to Uva. Didn't get in at the last minute. And she called me she said. Hey we're going to college together so we went to college. We broke up the beginning but it was small enough school that it was hard to maintain that so we actually stayed together through college and then after college we broke up in our twenties and then found each other again later in our twenties star. Our marriage and we've got two kids and that's visiting Willie also meant. I was visiting Christina because I'd also known her and her family. You know all those years too so that was cool. I mean that was so great. Yeah yeah so I would stay with her. Go to your crazy. Frat parties and see what college life was like and come back. It was going to Ali's Frat parties made me not want to leave. You did you did you. Did you go to college. Visit him and go to parties and I did. Yeah that was an interesting question. Didn't come to the Medieval Party. Was You're the basketball? Oh the you were naked Dunkin. He dunked naked respond to see. Yeah and Christina was like and you talk about that. On Morning Joe L. Stays here stays here. Cut that story. I'd like to say for the record. I had a jock. Strap ONS can thank you. Thanks again okay. So now your turn to go to college as Willie said my parents went to the University of Illinois and our whole family was from Chicago really in the Midwest so I always liked the idea of a big school but I couldn't go to Illinois because that's where my parents wanted me to go to of course so I looked at a lot of schools all around the country but then I went to Madison with my dad. He took me to the University Wisconsin to visit. And we just looked at each other and I was like. Oh wow like it's just such a special town. It's the best city the capital and they so they have you know big musical acts and there was a ton of politics happening on the sports. Were great and you know leaks Lhasa. Ross Yeah So I immediately fell in love with Madison and anyone I talked to was like. Oh yeah like. That's you know so it was it was. I applied to a ton of schools but I I kind of knew I wanted to go there but it's hard. It's a huge school far away from home and it's freezing. We didn't mind at this point. You're like you hit the ground running your like see you know what I'm GonNa do. I want to work so I graduated College in ninety seven. I came home so I came from Nashville. Came back home to New Jersey and I was just going to spend the summer at home and then go find a job and I was driving the not to Brag but I was driving the liquor delivery truck for wine and spirit world focused New Jersey. And so I did that to some that summer and I was having so much fun. That like bled all the way into Thanksgiving and Christmas and my parents were a job or what I was like. Oh this is going pretty well but I ended up all my bunch of my buddies had moved to Atlanta and so I just decided I'm going to move to Atlanta and figure it out and so I moved there. I applied to CNN And to the journal Constitution the newspaper down there the AJC didn't have a job. Cnn did have a job and that's literally got into TV. I took the job so I was your first job. It was I was an editor. It's actually at their sports network C. N. N. Sports illustrated which I remember perfect. Yeah was short lived but it was fun and it was like you know it was a bunch of young guys. Mostly guys my age like covering sports and watching Games editing highlights and like it was just fun you know. It was like a continuation of college. But you're getting paid not much but you're getting paid and so that was my first job. It was fun it really. That's interesting you know that 'cause underrated like the bars are open really late. Some of them were twenty four hours. Like it's a good party town. It's good and all the schools from the South. Like that's where you go. I remember it was like the open newsroom setup and so you'd be like I'm on the computer behind the you know the guy who's sitting at the desk on the left side of the shoulder so my parents and I would tune in and that was your first trying to get out and walk behind the printer. Let me just grab something. The printer looking mom and keep walking though when you were in college. What was your your focus. So I was a political science major which meant I didn't know what I wanted to do. but But no I love school. I had probably more fun than I should have. I would say but it was great and then I in turn Conan late night with Conan O'Brien. That was a good first step. I actually when I was working at that driving liquor truck. I thought maybe I wanted to be a writer for Conan to and I put together that summer. I worked all some run. It put together a writing packet and got the address and everything. I didn't know how anything worked. So he's got it and I put it in this big Manila folder and I remember the mailbox outside one in spirit world. I pause and I was like when I'm like a late night host someday on. I'll remember this moment in this mailbox is this is how it all began and Senate away dramatic. This is my ticket out and then like it took weeks and weeks and weeks and weeks and then I got a letter and I was like this is it went to the mailbox and it was like. I'm GonNa wait until I get home to open it and see when I start and all that and I open it up and it literally which I understand now it was like Not only do we not have position for you. We didn't read a single word of what you wrote. Because they have to protect themselves from liability. Of course they did something similar. I could say they stole it from me so like no one even looked at everyone hates you. Never show you literally like you. Don't think I think I wrote like monologue jokes and he was doing all those care. Those crazy like character the masturbating bear. You remember any of your monologue jokes. I'm sure they were like bad topical. Let's see that was ninety ninety seven bad. Clinton jokes or something. I'm so glad I don't know where it is awful. They're still time will either so after Madison Lane. What you Ju- Libby. What I do now so I have worked at. Espn four eleven wins Oscars Kate. I know she's well you. Yes so the film. The documentaries are different than the your world so the documentary one and our director and main producer. One we did not technically win one Oscar. Why don't you just say you want an Oscar? Because I don't have everyone's like where'd you put it? I was like well. I didn't really win. We didn't go on stage. It's not going on. Steve didn't mean you weren't a part of an Oscar. Winning the film wine were very excited. Okay corporate speak but also so my parents and Willie and Christina got dressed up in black tie and watch the Oscars from New York City on the Upper West Side. Sisters video of them celebrating. It was so cute. It was really nice. That's exciting made. America was the series. They right so I work at ESPN. So I started there eleven years ago when they were just kind of coming up with thirty for thirty which is our sports documentary series and so he started. I've done a lot of different jobs there like I. was in production a producer that I was just doing development like finding the stories and the filmmakers and matching them together and now I oversee the department. Espn films And a bunch of our content on ESPN plus which is the new streaming service. So we have so fun. Yeah it's really fun. What a cool job I know you not only get to work in storytelling right but these are real people. Truly aspirational story. Yeah thirty thirty s are not actually sports films like Oj. You could have shown very little football but you know it's the story of a man in a city and you know culture And so that's what we look for in everything. We do have some that they just finished one on Lance Armstrong. And one on Bruce Liu so those both were at Sundance which is really fun and I also think just in this moment of unscripted and All of the documentary stuff. That's happening in the series coming out like this is such a huge booming time and so for us to say we have here. I am I have money. I WanNa work with young hungry. Filmmakers and millions of people are going to see these like it feels like a really lucky place to be so when we go around. I mean I. We laughed after the first couple of years of thirty for thirty. Were laughing. We're like I can't believe who's taking my phone calls right now. This is so bizarre you know I love thirty really lucky woman to be running at that that department at ESPN awesome. Yeah thanks well. People say all the time they're like it must be really hard to be at ESPN. I'm not really. I honestly had really great mentors. They've been so good to me. I've and I know that's not everybody's story but I feel really lucky and about Libya's she's not really a sports fan so I always laugh that she said he has pinched. She's a filmmaker who happened. She makes she was working somewhere else and they made a film for. Espn ESPN said. Hey you're really good at that. You want to come work here. So if you ask her like who's in first place in the Eastern Conference Right. Now she data. I know it's not bad yet. She's running this huge department for ESPN YEARS AGO. For the fortieth anniversary of title nine. We did a series called nine for nine with nine directors and nine stories and we were really really careful that those weren't all like raw raw like the first to do this and the first two that I was like. No we have now. We have real history. There are real stories good and bad and so we tried to find really edgy. Stories of people would love. And we'll talk about because I think it's really hard to find stories that are marketable and that people are interested in seeing. And that's so sad to say. But if it's not Serena or a huge topic male or female. It's hard to get people excited. So that's a struggle sometimes honestly but we're constantly working harder to find really strong women's stories but also female directors. I always say women almost never pitched to me which is so interesting. And so. That's a huge concerted effort. Like anytime I go to festivals and like I you know you may not think to call me. But here's my car like if there's ever something you're interested in but there's so many amazing female stories so many we also do. We launched podcasts. Like almost documentary style audio podcasts. A couple years ago and my favorite one that we did actually is about Diana Rossi and sue bird Playing in Russia because women have to play to make money. They have to continue playing. They play all year so they all go abroad and they went and played for this guy. Shabby tie was actually a Russian mobster who owned a team in Russia. Cool but they're the way they talk about their life. Their cooley lived in a mansion and he would bring them like fresh. Strawberries are yet massages. It was like the total opposite of how their life is here and the WNBA but they made a ton of money and their life in Russia is so weird. Diana is hilarious by the way. And they just talk about this and then you know the dark side of that is shop tight like how he was funding all of that. And what his mobster business was already tell the stories he passed. Both of you guys are so accomplished in doing really interesting wonderful. It's been really fun since. She says she went Oscar since their film won an Oscar. All THESE THIRTY FOR THIRTY S. Get attention everyone is seeing like how great and how smart and she is because when you're on TV people think you're the you're the the one in the family who who does those things but lives doing these incredible things doing this great work and she's these deep dives and really interesting stories and you get jealous of her work. Sometimes the time she has to tell those stories honestly because ours is like turn it around. Get it on the show Sunday. That's she's taking months. She's making movie making films. You know should making documentaries. Which is my husband is in TV as well as air. He's a producer and he was like..

Were completely with your kids but for me I was just like all right and are tiny. Two Bedroom apartment was closing and it was like having two crazy monkeys in the house. Man Real but see our kids were born in New York and this is all they know. So it's actually not weird to them. It's still weird to us like my son who's ten plays baseball. But does you live at Chelsea Piers you go to Chelsea and his baseball is in on the upper west side. It's in the basement. His baseball is in the basement of an old bank and they opened them up and it's ten batting cages. That's become normal but we have friends from out of town.

Who's this chick? What are you guys like his kids? We had fun. I don't remember I was also young enough that I was always just your knowing little sister. I think until that change when we got older and we actually had things in common understood. I was like oh I like you. I remember when you went to college. Sorry it took eighteen years but when you left I was like Oh wait I think I miss him and I think we. I think we like each other now. Similar to Katie. And I like when when I went to college sort of when I took me going away for us to get closer. Hopefully yeah what. We also are far enough apart that we were never in school together so we weren't competitive for friends. She wasn't showing up at our parties in highschool. You know she was just young enough that there was nothing competitive about our relationship. So I don't know bite. My Dad's really funny. My uncle's everybody's funny so I would say we were. There was a lot of humor in our house. What kind of staffer you into as a kid definitely sports sports movies love movies. Sporty House Sporty sporty. I in high school. I played football and basketball. Libby played tennis won the State Championship and ten is a really good. She's fallen off since then but I did. Actually I did when I was really young.

"By the license to here are falling out. Yes life it's just it's it's this is the first five years of your life. That's the whole book for that. Very light alight seller but interesting like who all live in my house I remember I guess I remembered this was in Chicago in Evanston Illinois which is basically Chicago just outside in the north And I think I guess I remember it may be more from photographs and images than actual but I remember birthday parties. Dukes of hazzard cakes. Remember our little house that felt like a big house and then like we went back and drove by and I was like that was the. That's not the house and it was the house but in my mind it was huge and I think it was two or three bedrooms. It was like a modest house on it. But it'd be great street with lots of kids. The kind of town that like had the block party and you know the neighbor would come over. I got some Zucchini and my garden. It was like that like you didn't like that world old school neighborhoods. They tried to find one here in L. A. and I live in sort of a semi old school neighborhood. Tau Block parties. Yeah you know. It's hard to find these days and it's suspicious special. It's actually really special for the kids. I would say Libya's founded though. Don't you think where you live? Yeah we live in the BURBS and I think even in New Jersey where we live. We had the block parties and we had the friends like the best friends across the street. Where my first sleepovers? So that when I was when I had I have two little boys in my had them in the city and they were learning how to ride bikes. My older run and we. I was just screaming at every intersection.

"We moved in? Nineteen Eighty TWO NEW JERSEY. Five years old and Libya was even one maybe nine month less if yeah My Dad got a job with the New York Times. He was writing for the Chicago Tribune. I was born in Chicago. We both were and when I was five we moved to New Jersey when he got a job with the New York Times so forty years not in the city. But I've lived in the city for fifteen years but around is your data. Chicago native is that where is he from? He's from down state as they call it he's from Champagne Illinois And he went to the University of Illinois which was the street from his house and he says cost one hundred thirty five dollars a semester so his parents you're going there was in the late sixties and he met my mom there at the University of Illinois. Are they still together? I are crazy. Always a harmonious household consummate harling up fifty years got it. Yeah it was actually like it was people. I think you always look back in your life and your were there moments of strife and what was it. What was the adversity that we had overcome? There was little stuff but yeah it was a happy place we my dad was a writer for the New York Times. My mom was a social worker and then she was a realtor in our town after that and we had like a really nice good suburban life went to the school up the block and the high school up a couple more blocks and I would say it was like a pretty idyllic childhood definitely and you're in Jersey says in Jersey and Jazz Ridgewood New Jersey Bergen. And how often did you come into the city? That was a big deal. I think I remember for big birthdays. Like we'd get a limo and didn't get any of the perks. Here's the split. This is an important split. This is so my dad know this very real and I'm GONNA lean into it not so. My Dad was a columnist for the Metro. Section of the New York. Times have four seven years when I was growing up. 'cause we're five years apart and then he was hired after that. Don Hewitt who founded sixty minutes Read my Dad's comes in. Hey you ever think about doing TV. And my dad's a writer and they had him shoot a pilot of one of his pieces and they loved it and CBS hired him so he was making. I don't know what in nineteen eighty three to be the metro columnist New York Times. Not that much probably guessing and then a little more probably in the CBS years. So we always joke that. I grew up in the New York Times years. I never wrote a limo into the city. We took the short line bus into port authority. This is libby was riding limos into see elaborate Broadway production four and a half years his junior a different house that I lived in. Yeah Yeah but it was a big deal to go into the city and mom always liked and she still does goes to shows and she loves the city in the museums. And just the vibrancy here. Are they still there? So they just moved. I just moved into the suburbs a couple years ago and they followed there've been there was another step in there so in yeah they lived in New Jersey and then when libby left and went to college moved into the city because their life was so they lived on the upper west side for fifteen or sixteen years and then last year moved to Connecticut. Here's really haven't left this not a lot area. Yeah well except I went to college in Nashville for years. Which was a major. I loved it. Libby went to the University of Wisconsin. Oh Back Oh everything I loved it there. Did you guys know that you I mean? Clearly you're going to get into the television world based on your data I mean. Was that always kind of what you know. It's funny because people make that connection. Obviously because my dad was at CBS. And I got into the business to but you have to know that our parents are very mid Western so we've never like sat down and like had talks about like well. Journalism is a noble profession and ought to try it. It was just like by Osmosis and I could see that. He was traveling to cool places and meeting interesting people and he enjoyed his job and like it wasn't the old nine to five. Your Dad comes home with us. Shoulders slumped and throws his briefcase. He liked what he was doing. And I think just by that you probably have the same experience I was GonNa say it's similar. People always ask the same question. And you're like well. We didn't sit around a table and talk about scripts and a lot of his stuff on Sunday. Morning was personal. He did a lot of personal stories so there were cameras in our kitchen a lot of the time like they were his producers. We knew pretty. Well I remember at my wedding. They were they did a piece on my wedding and amy was crying in front of the church. Amy Was the first person I saw when I got out of the car and and she was like. I can't believe it and I was like you are not coming into the delivery room. This is where it stops. All good. Okay you know. What were the things that he would like? What would he do? Did a big one was coaching. Our Little League teams and like how outrageous and ridiculous suburban watching. Is You wrote a book about that eventually to WHO's basically an SAS than there was always some humor in it but he was you know he'd go to the Iowa State Fair and tell some great store he find these little kernels of stories. That don't look like anything on paper and then turn into some amazing story that says something about America and he wrote books about that and he did those pieces that like he was he did one in our house in New Jersey where Martha Stewart had. Just become big and she was like you can make a Christmas wreath out of just things you find in your backyard and in her backyard. Of course it was like these elaborate like figs and berries in that so my dad went in our backyard and there was like a Rusty Budweiser Fan and a tennis ball and like stuff like he was funny but also making some commentary and he was He he was always having fun but I I do remember. He not only did not encourage us to get in. I remember when I graduated from College. I was about to graduate. He's he was worried that it was going to get into it or he was worried that I thought that was the only thing that you could do so he was like. I need you to go like meet with people who have other jobs justin case because I was like I wanna do this internship and Semi went like. There's a guy in our town who worked at Goldman Sachs or something. I don't know anything about finance. I went had lunch with them. Because that's what you'd like. And he was like explaining the markets to me and I was like. I don't know what you're talking about and I'm not interested in what you're talk. No disrespect and then my mom had me. Go meet a family friend in. Remember the so well up in Connecticut. Who worked at northwest mutual insurance and it was literally like. Here's how term life works and I was like. Oh my God and that like made it official just rushed me into TV business so you were first born yes and and then you guys are four and a half years apart so you probably remember harbors or when she I remember life without libby. Remember life without living. I mean I was young. That's seeker autobiography by the license to here are falling out. Yes life it's just it's it's this is the first.

"Prototype that many of the places in the nation Russian could use yet the California experience in California concept a sometimes demeaned sometimes laughed at and that's unfortunate so when do a mayor And I remember like we created a single Earth Day breakfast with Francesca Veto and it's probably like the nine hundred day breakfast by now in my last day breakfast we did this in cold. How Green is Brown? Aw and his amazing you set this goal of zero waste for trash you put in place. The integrated past management for the city's parks you acquired. New Buildings Be Green. We had the first hydrogen fuel cell Honda. which is like three million dollars? You and I nearly nearly crashed like you did all these green things like how. How do you view the environment now? And at the time. Why did you WANNA take credit? Full the green stuff you're doing well it's important. Frankly that credit not be in the consideration of people engage in an innovative in creative ways. Many people are motivated if they think they're going to be acknowledged as having done it in so if you can get them to infecting gauge and become involved let them take their credit frankly in the halls of the legislature. Sure my goal in life was to have every member have his name on a bill before mine and that was important. And it's the same way if we're going to deal with the issues involved in the environment we've really got to get people motivated. Frankly to make it a priority with them for clean air for good quality. Water somehow convince people if we can that the the whole business of what happens with energy must be done in such a way that it improves. The environment rather than adversely personally affects environment the business involving climate. It's clearly some that we need to try to figure out how to get people involved. And the way in which the motivate them to so participate. My goal was always that I did not whether it was the ban on assault weapons that we had Mike. Ross do a whether it was or divestment in apartheid that we had maxine waters does do that free Nelson Mandela whether it was The business of emissions of that we had Byron Sher the come the responsible person for whether it was the business of managing water along before anybody tried to manage water charlie warn Tried to do exactly that and we hope orchestrate that whole business of what happens with reference to on the health L. Standards that emanate from environmental quality and environmental control. We had a number of people trying to put those those programs together particularly interested enough. Legislators from places like Marin County or legislators the ones from Santa Barbara area we at the state level now have a governor who experienced that kind of development in San Francisco as part of all the things that I ever dead dead and with him at the helm now. You've got a better shot in his emphasis on the Central Valley in the way. Okay then he has been playing and his becoming like the governor from the Central Valley. Although he's from San Francisco will cause the farmers is to want to follow his leadership on land. Planning and land use all those things are part of what we call climate control and environment. One thing that you also didn't take credit full but you did which actually has led to the development of the southeast part of the city's you help close down hunters point power plant you you took on. PG early and hod this issue of environmental justice namely if you look at pollution across the United States Cross is California you can find where the pollution is gonna be by wear low income communities of Colorado folk involve. If they're isolated there will not be enough strength politically to achieve anything. So you really need to try to engage and involve and have people not become only addicted to participate in in their short and narrow goal period in. That is how I tried to manage and how I tried operate so as you think about. Willy Brown's Christmas special which is like. What are you hoping for in the next few days like Christmas is offering time anxiety? How how do you manage this time of year mayor? I must tell you that. It's kind of amazing because the recycling of gifts have become the cornerstone of. I'm almost everybody these days and so what I've decided to do.
