Reporter Trades Locker Room For Links

WESTHAMPTON, N.Y. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – The golf course is a much more comfortable place for an interview than a sweaty locker room.

That’s what reporter Ann Liguori has learned over the years interviewing sports stars from baseball and basketball players to golf and tennis pros.

Liguori prefers conducting interviews on the golf course – while working on her swing – over trying to get a soundbite in the stinky, noisy locker room.

When she broke into sports reporting in the mid-’80s, she admits post-game locker room interviews were awkward because some athletes wouldn’t even wear towels in there.

She recounts, “The locker room was not a pretty place.”

Now, after gaining respect, credibility, and her own production company, Liguori’s interviews take place on lush golf courses, where the view is much better.

She enjoys chatting with golfers because their careers span longer than the average athlete and they “don’t have to retire at 27.”
