I am working on a research project for the University of Wisconsin-Madison. I have interviewed Briggs for my project and now I would like to interview a commenter. It would take a little less than an hour and would be over the phone. If any of you who comment on a regular basis would be interested, please send me an email - firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you
My name is Mark Mederson. I'm a Ph.D. student studying journalism and mass comm at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. I worked in TV sports and news for many years and I spent some time writing on B/R (before I returned to grad school). I'm working on a research paper about B/R and, in particular, boxing coverage. I was wondering if you might be willing to be interviewed for my research? It would be by phone and take about an hour. I can give you a lot more specific information in an email if you might be interested.
Big fan of your work.
