Yesterday, Front Row shared some of the details of how Chris Connelly’s interview with Michael Sam came about.

Today, in this Front & Center podcast, we hear from Connelly himself on some of his impressions of the process, the interview and his interactions with Sam.

Included in the discussion is how former American Idol Adam Lambert played a (small) role in Connelly getting the interview; the resources from ESPN’s news desk he used to prepare; reaction he has received; and a salute to the team effort ESPN’s news gathering unit exhibited in landing and presenting the interview.
