OLYMPIAN TIM MOREHOUSE INTERVIEWS NHL STAR BRAD RICHARDS FOR E! NEWS
Olympic silver medalist in fencing, Tim Morehouse, has scored a gig with E! News to act as a special news correspondent. This is not the first time the entertainment show has handed the mic over to an Olympic athlete. Swimmer Ryan Lochte served as a fashion correspondent for the program during New York Fashion Week in September.
Like Lochte, Morehouse is no stranger to the fashion scene. He was among the Olympians who appeared at Bergdorf Goodman for Fashion’s Night Out. He also made the rounds during Fashion Week, sitting front row at runway shows including Michael Bastian.
Morehouse’s made his E! News debut last night and his first assignment had him talking to another star athlete about a stylish endorsement deal. He interviewed New York Rangers center, Brad Richards, with regards to his latest fashion endeavor. Richards was recently named the face of men’s apparel brand UNTUCKit.
Morehouse asked, “What made you want to dive into the fashion world?” to which Richards responded “Moving here. It gets put in front of you a lot more in New York City.” He also got the hockey star to dish on a potential design career. Richards hopes to collaborate with the brand to develop his own shirts.
Morehouse has also interviewed Shawn Johnson as part of his E! News duties, though the segment has yet to air.
