AA Podcast #28 – Michelle Beadle

This week's AA Podcast guest is Michelle Beadle from NBC and Access Hollywood.

We talk about the transition to working sports and entertainment,

-The plans for her new NBC show and how it could resemble Chelsea Lately. 
-What NBC could offer her that ESPN didn't. 
-The one thing she misses about ESPN. 
-Why ESPN is so obsessed with Tim Tebow. 
-Her experience covering the Olympics in London and why she didn't make it to a venue. 
-Which NBC anchor turned out to be her hallway buddy. 
-That interview with Kellie Wells and Dawn Harper and the Lolo Jones controversy. 
-Living under the microscope as a popular woman in a male dominated world. 
-The challenges facing those labeled as "the next Michelle Beadle."
