Tune Into WRVO’s Campbell Conversations Sunday to listen as Maxwell Professor Grant Reeher interviews Coach Hopkins.
The Syracuse University Men’s Basketball Team is off to a good start this season, prior to its first run in the ACC. Recent rankings place the team fourth in the nation. On this week’s edition of the Campbell Conversations, Grant Reeher talks with Mike Hopkins, an associate head coach. Beyond the endless speculation about if and when he will become the University’s next head coach, Hopkins is known for his recruiting skills and his ability to develop players. In this conversation, he discusses how athletics and academics mix in big-time college sports, the recipes for success as a player and a coach, and how some aspects of the system might be improved.
Every week Grant Reeher, Director of the Campbell Public Affairs Institute at Syracuse University, leads a conversation with a notable guest. Guests include people from central New York – writers, politicians, activists, public officials, and business professionals whose work affects the public life of the community – as well as nationally-prominent figures visiting the region to talk about their work.
The Campbell Conversations are longer interviews which encourage the character of the interviewee to be exposed. This allows you to learn more about the person, how they got to where they are, and where they plan to go. Grant attempts to go beyond the usual press conference questions and sound bites, which usually accompany a discussion about his guests.
Podcasts of the show are available via iTunes.
