The Daly Planet Interviews From 2007
This season, we wrapped-up a full year of NASCAR TV action by interviewing three of the most popular TV personalities here on The Daly Planet.
First up was Steve Byrnes, who has perhaps one of the busiest schedules of any on-air "talent." His appearance in the movie "Dale" and his memories of Dale Earnhardt Sr. were hot topics. To read his interview, click here.
Following Steve was his SPEED co-worker Wendy Venturini. Having just returned from her marriage and honeymoon in the Caribbean, Wendy sat down for a late night session of answering questions submitted by The Daly Planet readers. Please click here to see her answers.
Finally, we greatly appreciated NASCAR on Fox's Mike Joy stopping-by just before Christmas vacation to fill us in on his opinions on a wide variety of topics. Mike has a long and diverse history with all types of racing, and his answers reflected someone with a veteran perspective. To read them, click here.
The Daly Planet interview series will continue the week after Christmas with Krista Voda, the host of the Craftsman Truck Series pre-race show and the "new kid on the block" as a pit reporter for NASCAR on Fox.
We are still talking to a variety of NASCAR TV personalities to complete this "reader interview" series during the off-season. There will be an update shortly.
There are also some new stories involving the TV "faces" that you know from last season's coverage that are about to break over the next several weeks. After a short break of our own, The Daly Planet will return on Wednesday, December 26th.
To all the loyal readers of this blog, thanks for a great season. We received thousands of comments about the hundreds of hours of TV programming that was sent our way by the NASCAR TV partners.
This year will long be remembered for some very interesting TV moments. If you have a favorite single moment that you would like to share, please feel free...within our wonderful guidelines, of course.
