For episode 23 & 24 of the Outstanding Ohioans show, I had the pleasure of interviewing sports On-Air Radio Personality/Producer Dave DeNatale from ESPN Cleveland radio.

I first met Dave as fellow students at Bowling Green State University.  Like Dave, I initially started out interesting in sports broadcasting, but then I chose a different path.  I did have the pleasure of meeting Joe Tait with Dave when Mr. Tait came to campus.  

A couple of years ago, I was visiting family in Northeast Ohio.  I tuned into 850 AM to hear some Cleveland sports talk.  I heard Dave talking, and I got such a kick listening to him and his enthusiasm.    

In his fantastic book The Greatest Salesman In The World, Og Mandino listed ten commandments for success.  The third commandment was "I Will Persist Until I Succeed".  As you will hear in the podcast, Dave embodies this virtue as well as any person I have ever known.  He will share some personal stories about his health and his dedication to his craft that has led to some unique, valuable experiences in his profession.

To listen to the show, click on one of the following:

Here are some highlights from our conversation:

  • His parents and grandparents were outstanding role models growing up in Northeast Ohio.  They taught Dave the value of belief, humor, being genuine, supportive, importance of education, and hard-working.
  • Being "Pen-Pals" with Doug Dieken, and how he got to meet Nev Chandler when he was 15 years old, a relationship that developed into Nev mentoring Dave.
  • His "many" options of going to college, ultimately choosing Bowling Green State University.
  • Involvement in BSGU student-run radio station, and the experiences he acquired.
  • His journey working at radio stations in Defiance, Ohio; Carroll, Michigan; and Oberlin.
  • Why the Browns continue to get more support than the Indians?
  • How radio has changed and is continuing to change
  • Difference in criticizing in amateur vs. professional sports
  • his "Bull Durham"-like summer working as the play-by-play voice of the Lake Erie Crushers
  • His advice to people wanting to enter this profession:
    • learn how to write
    • acquire versatile skills in multiple roles
    • acquire some TV production background
    • become credible through honesty and being genuine
    • have a fall back plan
  • His aspirations are to host his own show and be the play-by-play voice of a college or professional team.
  • Dave desires to leave behind a legacy of:  passion, doing things the right way, serving the best interests of people around me, being genuine & credible, treating people the right way
  • To connect with Dave, follow him on Twitter

For episode 22 of the Outstanding Ohioans show, I had the pleasure of interviewing author Susan Guy.  Susan has spent her professional career in law enforcement and wrote a book called Mobsters, Madams, & Murders in Steubenville, Ohio, the story of Little Chicago.

This time period, while traditionally romanticized, was an era of violence and fear.  Listen to Susan explain what the environment was like during this time.

To listen to the show, click on one of the following:

Here were some highlights of the interview:

  • Susan's father was a police officer and her hero
  • Susan and her mother read & watched The Untouchables and Nancy Drew
  • why she was fascinated by this time and topic in history
  • the rapid progression of her book being published
  • focus on the Prohibition Officers who lost their lives enforcing the law
  • learn about the Tri-State Writer's Society
  • Connect with Susan

In this episode, I had the pleasure of conducting a second interview with Reason's Nick Gillespie.  Nick is a nationally-recognized journalist as Editor-In-Chief of Reason and Reason Magazine.  He frequently interviews public figures and appears on a variety of shows discussing political issues.   The Reason Foundation’s motto is “Free Minds & Free Markets”.  Check out the first interview here.

If you feel the government needs to be smaller and less intrusive, balance their budget, trust people to make their own choices, protect civil liberties, and support strong defense, not intervention, Reason researches these issues and we talk about some of these in the interview.

 Thank you for listening.  Have a great day!
