WHAS-TV newscasts from 2000, featuring Melissa Swan, Jean West, Gary Roedemeier, and Chuck Olmstead (00:02), Ken Schulz (4:10), George Sells (5:26), Julie Pursley (8:19), & Mark Hebert (10:20). Terry Meiners personality profile (15:07) with Rachel Platt. ---- During the 2001-02 season, Meiners and Rick Pitino co-hosted the UofL Cardinals coach's weekly show from Jillians in front of a studio audience. (21:11). Why a variety/interview show instead of a basketball highlights show? Because Pitino's first team at UofL was short on talent so the coach opted to try his comedy chops and impersonate Johnny Carson. This January 2002 episode's special guest was Louisville football coach John L. Smith (36:22) fresh off a Liberty Bowl victory. By the next basketball season, Pitino felt as though he had enough quality ballers to do a strong 30 minute basketball-only show. Sports Illustrated and the New York Times both did feature stories on the Pitino variety show concept.
