  • NO
    People need privacy! It will also avoid issues just like what's going on in that article.

  • I don't think reporters of the opposite sex should be let into a locker room. We wouldn't allow male reporters around a bunch of half- naked female athletes, why should female reporters be around a bunch of half- naked male athletes.

  • Personally I don't think any reporters (male or female) should go into the locker rooms. People are in there to change and decompress after a game, not the time to have a reporter around.

    As a woman, I would not want a male reporter in the room while I am changing. I think it is a double standard allow female reporters in the locker room while men are showering and changing. Really, I don't think anyone extra needs to be in there. If you are not showering or changing yourself, then get out.... IMO. No need for extra people to be lingering around a locker room period.

    If they must have this "locker room" interview, then there should be a special place set aside for it in an office or side room.

  • I agree with you. I don't think ANY reporters should go into a locker room... would I want to be interviewed in the bathroom?! Same thing to me.

  • They shouldn't be allowed in the locker room. That's the time to blow off steam, etc when you've had a bad game. Not the time you want somebody shoving a mic in your face asking how you feel about a bad call. Defianately shouldn't have opposite sexes in the locker room. I'd sure hate to have some strange man come in my bathroom and interview me when I'm changing.

  • NOBODY should go in the locker room. It makes bad TV and bad audio and puts the broadcaster in the position of possible FCC violations.

    And I am a TV and radio news producer. Nope. Locker room interviews add NOTHING. They're like nighttime live shots in front of empty buildings. Stupid.
