Although Dave Kendall began his career as a journalist, the success of the shows he created or produced - and his television exposure - often led him to be on the other side of the journalist's microphone or TV camera.
He has given numerous interviews, particularly about "120 Minutes" and "Music Scoupe", to a variety of television, radio and print media.
Kendall's TV interviews included spots on the BBC, CNN and "48 Hours", while he was a featured guest on the nationally syndicated radio show "Modern Rock Live"and gave scores of phone interviews on radio stations across the country.
He has given hundreds of interviews for magazines and newspapers, including The New York Times, the New York Daily News, New York Newsday, The Los Angeles Times and Spin. He was the subject of full-length feature articles in Creem, Alternative Press and In Fashion magazines.
In addition, Kendall also received national radio airplay when a San Diego college student sampled his voice from an episode of "120 Minutes" and edited it into a hilarious spoken word collage over AC/DC's "Back In Black." "Everybody knows,"Kendall heard himself affirm in a kindof inverse mantra, "I am really stupid."
