How Salters Interviewed Megatron and McCoy

E:60’s Lisa Salters explains how she got Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson to relax and open up in an interview, no mean feat, in light of Johnson’s painful shyness.  Johnson may be the All-Pro “Megatron” on the field, but off the field he had been a blank slate, until he encountered Salters.

The interview took place before the season at Johnson’s childhood home near Atlanta, and at his high school.

Salters also explains how she handled an emotional LeSean McCoy in an interview with the Eagles running back.
