Mighty Joe Sampson: The student has become the teacher

March 28, 2020

Joe Sampson joined 97X as a Miami University student intern (a.k.a. "Breakfast Club co-producer") in 1993 and stuck around as a weekender after he graduated before moving on to short stint as a writer for CityBeat, and a 12-year career as a news producer at Channel 19 and later Channel 9 in Cincinnati. He now has come full circle as a Miami U. professor. We chat with "Mighty Joe" about his late nights with "Mama Jazz", 97X softball teams, and his undying love for both Steve Baker and another 97X student intern.
