Conversations with Champions Logo

UofL Conversations With Champions, featuring Billy Reed, aims to promote principles of integrity and character while celebrating the achievements of college and professional athletes. Hosted by veteran sports journalist Billy Reed, each event features a one-on-one conversation between Mr. Reed and a notable sports figure in a theater setting. Following the discussion, a Q&A session gives audience members the unique opportunity to ask questions and get real-world advice from a sports industry professional. This project is based in the Department of Health and Sport Sciences' Sport Administration program at UofL's College of Education and Human Development (CEHD). It is made possible by the generous support of the Office of the President, UofL Athletics Office, and the CEHD.
