Katie Couric anchors the CBS Evening News, Brian Williams leads the NBC Nightly News, even San Diego's Action News! has Ron Burgundy. None compare to Chad Ochocinco's latest endeavor into the world of news.
The Bengals wide receiver's Ochocinco News Network is making its presence felt at Super Bowl XLIV. Ochocinco and other NFL players will take to the streets during Super Bowl week to gather the thoughts and opinions of Colts and Saints players.
As a six-time Pro Bowl wide receiver, Ochocinco knows exactly what his audience wants to hear.
"They want to hear the players' perspective," Ochocinco told ESPN.com. "They don't want to hear what the other [media] outlets say about what they feel is going on. People want to hear what the players feel about the events, the whole nine yards."
Motorola has assembled a news team consisting of Ochocinco and three other NFL players to cover the Super Bowl in Miami. Redskins tight end Chris Cooley is happy to be a part of the news team.
"To be honest, I don't really know Chad that well," Cooley told ESPN.com. "He's so outgoing, he's such a prevalent figure in social networking. When Motorola asked me to do this, I was excited because I get to hang out with Chad for a week."
Who would be Ochocinco's dream interview? NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, of course.
Goodell has fined Ochocinco in the past for his excessive celebrations on the field. The two-time first-team All-Pro is prepared to interview Goodell if he gets the opportunity during Super Bowl week.
"When that time comes, I'll be prepared for him,? Ochocinco told ESPN.com. ?Trust me, I have a lot of questions for him.?
