My TribeCast Interview w. Legendary Sports Reporter Roy S. Johnson

##### Roy S. Johnson has quite a unique perspective.

From growing up as an African-American in the Civil Rights era in Tulsa, Oklahoma, to his college tenure at Stanford University thereafter, Roy was groomed for his eventual career in journalism.

For three decades, he was based in New York, where he worked for the likes of Sports Illustrated, the New York Times, and Men’s Fitness. He’s appeared in, directed and co-produced documentaries on ESPN, including ESPN’s acclaimed 30 For 30 series.

He came up at a time where African-American journalists were few and far between. Roy’s work paved the way for many incredible journalists who would come after his arrival, and he did it at a time where African-American athletes like Jim Brown, Muhammad Ali, Isaiah Thomas, and many others, used their platform to create change in sport.

Roy was there to cover it. He covered Michael Jordan’s 3-Peats and the rise of Tiger Woods in golf. He’s seen a lot, covered a diverse cast of characters in sports and business, and then he ended up in Birmingham, Alabama of all places, in 2014.

I saw a piece he wrote on Ali recently, for the Alabama Media Group (AL.com), which Roy is now working for as a sports columnist. His name seemed familiar. I knew I had seen it before in an ESPN film and sure enough, I looked him up to find out I was on point!

We connected and our conversations were so contagious that I just had to get him on for a TribeCast interview. I’m proud that God connected us and excited to share our talks with you.

THIS MONTH ON TRIBECast we interview Robb Wolf, THE Godfather of the Paleo Diet. Jim digs into the events that led to Robb’s involvement in Health, Nutrition and Fitness; how it’s evolved since he first heard about the Paleo diet in 1998, and some first-hand accounts and thoughts on being a coach that delivers an experience based on education and accountability. From the episode:

“I ended up losing both of my parents to complications with Type 2 Diabetes… I couldn’t help my parents but I can help everyone else’s parents…”

“I like to call myself the Forrest Gump of fitness… finding myself at the ground floor of the paleo diet.”

“I really believe that primary care medicine comes out of a well-run gym. You get the opportunity to educate on sleep, food, exercise, community… Community is an absolutely, essential, non-negotiable element of human health.”

“99% of what we need (in health) can be provided in the context of the gym.”

THIS MONTH ON TRIBECast we interview Dave Ramsey personality and Financial Expert, Chris Hogan. In this episode we’ll explore not only the principles of financial success and making the best decisions, but his upcoming book and the most important principles of building lasting relationships, a most prized core value of Iron Tribe Fitness.

Who is Chris Hogan?

Chris is on a mission to educate, encourage, and empower people to do more in retirement, leadership, business, and life.

A former national champion and all-American football player, Chris Hogan has never backed down from a challenge. But how did he find his way off the gridiron and onto the path of helping others achieve financial peace?

Once his playing days were over, Hogan served as the vice president of a well-respected mortgage company helping clients manage their money and their businesses. In the process, he realized that too many marriages and families were being adversely impacted by financial issues because they could not communicate openly and honestly about money. Hogan realized that the way people were counseled about money had to change. That’s when he met Dave Ramsey.

Today, Hogan helps spread the message of hope and financial peace to audiences across the country. Chris helps people plan for their future and reach their retirement goals through his Retire Inspired Live Events and R:IQ Assessment tool. Hogan works with high profile clients, including business leaders, professional athletes and entertainers, to help them develop financial strategies to generate revenue, protect their wealth, and secure their futures.
