Larry King offers advice, entertainment

first_imgLegendary CNN anchor Larry King spoke to a half-filled Bovard Auditorium Tuesday night, relaying humorous stories about his early life and his rise to fame, and also dispensing advice to aspiring journalists.Live · Larry King, host of CNN’s Larry King Live, spoke to a half-filled Bovard Auditorium on Tuesday. King told stories from his life and discussed the future of journalism. – Vicki Yang | Daily Trojan The event was sponsored by USC Program Board, who hoped King’s story would provide a valuable learning opportunity for communication and journalism students.King’s first experience as a broadcaster was at a small station in Miami Beach, Fla. on May 1, 1957. In the 53 years since then, he has conducted more than 40,000 interviews and won an Emmy and two Peabody awards.King began by telling the audience he hadn’t planned any of his speech, which consisted of tales from his youth. Throughout the speech he had the audience laughing and engaged.King never attended college, but he said he knew early on where he was going.“I always wanted to be a broadcaster,” he said.In 1957, he had a cleaning job at a Miami Beach radio station. One day, one of the radio personalities quit, so King, then known as Larry Zeiger, stepped in and soon gained local renown.King told the audience about his experiences giving speeches, including at the Miami Shores Country Club, whose members, he joked, were ultra-conservatives who “handed out baby pictures of Rush Limbaugh saying ‘he is born.’” He also spoke for the Mafia once, he said.King also told the story of the time he faked the death of his cousin in junior high school, saying that he and two friends collected $211 by asking for money to fund the funeral.When he was done telling personal stories, King took questions from the audience.“They charge this kind of tuition…” King started, laughing, when a microphone at the front of the auditorium wasn’t working.One student asked King where he predicted the media was going.“All of this overwhelms me — the Twitter, the Facebook,” King said. “Where is it going? I have no idea.”King said his producer runs his Twitter page and that he merely dictates what goes up online. He described Twitter as an “egomaniac’s heaven.”His advice for aspiring journalists was simply to focus on breaking into the business through any means possible.He added that the key to success is to be yourself.“The only secret in broadcasting is there’s no secret,” King said. “If you’re good enough, you’re good enough.”Though the rain may have kept some would-be audience members from attending the sold-out event, those who did come said they enjoyed King’s stories.“He’s way funnier than I was expecting,” said Katie Barker, a sophomore majoring in cinema production. “I really enjoyed his anecdotes about his personal life. You don’t get to hear that on his show.”Students were surprised with King’s persona compared to what they are used to seeing on T.V.“We got to see an aspect of his personality that doesn’t come through on T.V.,” said Greg Kestenbaum, a sophomore majoring in environmental studies. “He’s more jovial than I imagined.”USG Director Beibei Bai, who coordinated the event, said one of the reasons the Program Board chose King to speak for this event is his experience conducting tens of thousands of interviews. Bai said she thought the discussion would be relevant to journalism and communication majors.“I feel a lot of students don’t get the chance to talk to someone who’s an important figure in entertainment but on a serious note,” Bai said. “With King, it’s not purely entertainment.”last_img read more

Five talking points ahead of Arsenal against Atletico

first_img0Shares0000Arsene Wenger is hoping to leave Arsenal on a high by winning his first European trophy © AFP/File / Adrian DENNISMADRID, Spain, May 3 – Arsene Wenger’s glorious farewell will be on the line on Thursday as Arsenal visit Atletico Madrid in the Europa League semi-final second leg.Atletico held on for a 1-1 draw in the opening game in London last week and Diego Simeone’s side are heavy favourites to make the final in Lyon later this month. Here, AFP Sport looks at five talking points ahead of the clash in Madrid:Wenger braced for last Arsenal game in EuropeIf Wenger had been able to handpick the setting for potentially his last European match in charge of Arsenal, Atletico’s Wanda Metropolitano would likely have been low down the list.To avoid defeat, his team will have to deliver the sort of break-out display they have managed in the FA Cup in recent years, against Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea.Wenger got closest to a European trophy in 2006 when his side were beaten in the Champions League final by Barcelona and in 2000, when they lost in the UEFA Cup final to Galatasaray.A glorious farewell is still within reach.Atletico impenetrable at homeAtletico are unbeaten at home in La Liga this term and have not conceded a single goal on their own patch since January.The success of Simeone’s side has been based on work rate and discipline but Arsenal can draw encouragement from last week’s opening leg, when they created several excellent chances.The key in Madrid is likely to be patient. Over-exert, and Arsenal may leave themselves open to Atletico’s all-too familiar combination of absorb and counter.But it will take a certain level of attacking intent to break down arguably Europe’s most resilient defence. Arsenal must find the perfect balance.Lacazette to prove his worthAlexandre Lacazette scored Arsenal’s first-leg goal, but missed several other chances © AFP / Adrian DENNISWith Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang cup-tied, Alexandre Lacazette is again expected to start up front for Arsenal and the Frenchman will have to be more clinical than he was in the first leg.Lacazette scored the opener but missed a number of chances to give his team the lead and he has particular motivation against Atletico, who tried to sign him last year before their transfer ban kicked in.“He is a fantastic player with great speed and movement,” Simeone said. “What distinguishes him most is his speed of execution in the final third.”Costa back for AtletiDiego Costa missed the opener in London with a hamstring strain but the striker is expected back, having come through Sunday’s win over Alaves unscathed.The striker’s return is a huge boost for Atletico. Costa’s tenacity will be well-known to Arsenal but he also brings the best out of partner Antoine Griezmann, who has enjoyed a sharp upturn in form since the Spaniard joined in January.If Costa can martial Laurent Koscielny and Shkodran Mustafi, Atletico will hope Griezmann can capitalise on the extra space.Simeone constrained to the standsDiego Simeone was banished to the stands during the first leg at the Emirates © IKIMAGES/AFP / Ian KINGTONSimeone is never one to hold back on the touchline, often celebrating tackles and blocks just as enthusiastically as a goal.He overstepped the mark, however, last week and was sent off, meaning he will have to watch from the stands in the second leg.Atletico will certainly miss their coach and motivator on the line. It remains to be seen how much.“The stadium must know we need them, we need them to live the game like our coach lives it,” captain Diego Godin said. “That will help us a great deal.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Report Balotelli set for Marseille medical

first_imgItalian striker Mario Balotelli will reportedly undergo a medical today at Marseille after being granted permission to leave OGC NiceThe 28-year-old had been strongly linked with a switch to Marseille in last summer’s transfer window before the move fell through.In light of that, Balotelli remained at Nice for this season after an impressive first two seasons at the French Riviera with 43 goals scored in 66 games.This impressive form in France led Balotelli to receive a recall into the Italy national team by former Inter Milan and Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini after a four-year absence.But Balotelli’s performances at Nice have dropped off with the Italian failing to find the net once in all 10 of his appearances this season.In light of this, manager Patrick Vieira gave Balotelli a few extra days off during the French winter break in order to make a decision over his future.And now Sky Sports reports that the move to Marseille is back on with Balotelli set to sign a deal that will earn him £2.7m for 17 games during his six months at the Stade Velodrome.Currently, there is no mention of Marseille’s alleged plans for Balotelli come to the end of the season.Opinion: Neymar needs to apologize to PSG’s supporters Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 14, 2019 After such a dramatic summer during the transfer window, Neymar truly needs to apologize to all the PSG supporters this weekend.When Neymar finished last…Although the transfer will come as a welcome boost for the controversial forward, who was warned by Mancini earlier this month that he must prove he merits a recall to Italy after omitting him in their last five games.“I’ve done my best for him and I always hope something good happens to him. He’ll only return to the national team if he deserves it,” said Mancini on Balotelli.“As a young lad he gave me so much, both at Inter and in Manchester, but he’s given me very little in recent months.“Still, he’s 28 and he has time if he wants. The Euros and World Cup should be fatal attractions for him.“The European qualifiers begin in March. If we’re in trouble and he keeps scoring one or two goals per game then I’ll call him up.“However, he must know that he won’t be a part of our future due to his age. It’s a principle that applies to everyone.”West Ham and Newcastle were also reportedly linked with a move for Balotelli in this month’s transfer window.last_img read more
