It was awesome doing a phone interview with David Brenner several weeks ago for the Millburn/Short Hills Alternative Press.

I spent about 35 minutes on the phone with him. Off the record I told him I had a childhood crush on him when he was on Hollywood Squares in the 1970s. He laughed. He was a very humble, down to earth guy.

That same day I got to talk to doo wop legend, Tommy Mara, who is Brenner’s special guest at Paper Mill Playhouse on Saturday March 16.

Get Ready for Interviews!

Published November 8, 2012 by Maryanne


Me conducting interview for article over the summer

Not too long ago I read an inspiring blog about not making every blog about yourself, but interviewing others. I thought it was a fantastic idea, but didn’t know if my readership was large enough yet.

I checked out my stats and I actually have more readers/followers than I thought, so I figure this is an appropriate time to start interviewing other people.

Interviewing has always been my favorite part of journalism. I guess you can say I’m nosy by nature, which is a good thing in my opinion and that’s why I make a damn good journalist. People always open up to me, revealing secretive things. I always have to ask, “Are you sure this is ON THE RECORD?”

In this day and age too many people are self-centered and don’t show enough interest in others. I miss the 1980s and 1990s when people asked others questions that were none of their business.  So, I’ve decided to bring “nosy” back with some kick ass, inspiring, thought-provoking interviews!

I am excited to say I have two very talented people already lined up for near future interviews — one photographer and one screen writer!

STAY TUNED and watch me do what I do best!
