The Big Interviews

Dave Kinchen’s assignments have included several high-profile interviews with a wide range of newsmakers over the years. Here’s a look at some of those stories.

In 2017, Dave joined the White House Press Briefing to ask Press Secretary Sean Spicer about President Trump’s tax reform agenda. It was part of the White House’s revolutionary Skype Seat program which allowed non-Washington D.C. reporters to join the Briefings.

This interview with OJ Simpson’s former sister-in-law Denise Brown is one of the most watched videos on Dave Kinchen’s YouTube page. Here she talks about her campaign against domestic abuse and discusses her sister.

In this interview with Ford President Alan Mulally, the CEO talks about how his company was the only one able to avoid a federal government takeover, unlike fellow Big Three members General Motors and Chrysler LLC. Dave Kinchen caught up with him during the 2010 North American International Auto Show.

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie brought his high-profile campaign efforts to the Midwest in 2010, stumping for Michigan Republicans running statewide. Here he talked with Dave Kinchen about his national influence and a possible presidential run.

Dave caught up with then-U.S. Sen. Barack Obama from Illinois in 2008 for a 1-on-1 interview, while on a campaign stop in Flint, Michigan. At that point he was weeks away from securing the Democratic Party’s nomination for president.

Former U.S. House Speaker Newt Gingrich has been all over national television and radio airwaves since leaving his post in Congress, offering solutions for a variety of issues facing the country. In 2010, Dave Kinchen met up with him as he campaigned for several  Michigan Republican candidates. In this story Gingrich discussed ideas to turn Michigan’s economy around. He would later run for president.

Dave Kinchen talked with The Rev. Jesse Jackson as he pushed a national agenda focusing on America’s urban areas, ahead of the 2010 mid-term elections. Jackson called for more federal spending on programs designed to create jobs and train workers.

This story is a bit older and takes place in the weeks leading up to the 2004 Presidential election. Dave Kinchen covered a campaign appearance by former Vice President Al Gore and spoke with him during a brief interview after the event.
