I spent the day with Charles Everett. He is a journalist for the Back9Network which is an entertainment and lifestyle golf television network. Charles spent most of his life as an Actor appearing on stage in venues like Symphony Space, HERE Arts Center and Theater Row. He then moved to television appearing on shows like 30 Rock, Law and Order and Rescue Me. After spending plenty of time behind the cameras he got involved with the Back9Network where he covers professional golf tournaments and hosts a show on the companies YouTube channel called The Back9 in 90. Eventually he plans on co-hosting his very own program on the television network called “Quiet Please”. The company is based out of Connecticut but was covering the 2013 PGA Merchandising Show in Orlando, so I drove to meet him and see what it was all about!
Everett’s’ job at the event was to walk around to different venders and manufacturers and conduct interviews with different people to uncover all of the new products being released this year. I followed him and his two person crew to multiple sets where he met with some of the lead designers for products like Cobra Golf and TaylorMade.
I expected him to have pre-written most of the questions that were to be asked during the interviews, but instead he made them up as the interviews went on. “Each piece comes out much better when you just go with the flow,” he said.
After spending a day with Charles I realized that his job although fun, is a ton of work. I had a great time learning about what his average work day is like and look forward to staying in contact with him in the future!
