Wilton spoke with Perry Robinson, an anchor and multimedia journalist at KNOE-TV in Monroe, Louisiana. I’ve had the privilege of knowing Perry for over a decade, going back to the days at Jim Hill High School to days at Southern Miss in journalism classes to being members of the Kappa Iota Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Incorporated.
He is a brother by frat but we’ve seen each other through some crazy times. In fact, in the summer 2016 when I was interning in Hattiesburg, it was his apartment where I lived on a blow-up mattress or crashed on his couch throughout the month of July. That seems like forever ago. Life comes at you fast.
Those humble beginnings have grown into a lifelong bond, infamous laughs, talks about sports and sharing our talents in the world of journalism.
Sit back and get ready to listen as he discusses his path to journalism, the role of a journalist in today’s society, the impact of sports on society, his love for Boston sports and more.
