Fox Sports Journo Jay Glazer is ‘Happy to be Alive’

ShutterstockJayGlazerWhen the NFL draft kicks off its three-day Radio City Music Hall run next Thursday, one on-site journalist will feel as blessed as the athletes getting ready to bank seven-figure signing bonuses.

For those who do not watch America’s Got Talent, this week’s Pensacola News Journal interview by Troy Moon with 11-year-old Florida country singer Chloe Channell was a great primer ahead of her appearance at Radio City Music Hall last night. After auditioning in New Orleans and making it through the second round in Las Vegas, Channell was set to wow the judges once again.

In the video interview with Moon, Channell – alongside her mom – is full of precocious confidence. She proudly points to a mounted “eight pointer” buck shot by her grandmother and raves about the taste of deer jerky.
