It forces me to stay on my toes and challenges me to improve my news gathering, because viewers are able to ask questions in real-time.

Additionally, while working for New Orleans Public Radio station, WWNO, Kevin served as producer on a number of radio broadcasts, podcasts, and live engagement-reporting events.

Those spaces were converted into venues.
