There were certain things Ron made me privy to that could not be discussed due to legal ramifications that could negatively impact him.
Now I have a timeline. We had already booked 2 interviews with Keith Jardine and Jorge Masvidal. That left me with exactly 35 minutes to squeeze two more interviews in. I set Ron up with 20 minutes, and had set aside 15 for Jason.
We interviewed Ron as scheduled, and I wrapped the interview at the 21 minute mark because of our duty to do Jason's interview. I had them scheduled within 10 minutes of each other. When I was wrapping with Ron, I got a text from Jason asking for us to call him 10 minutes later than scheduled time, because he was on a very important conference call. I did as he asked, with no answer from his phone when I called. I waited 10 more minutes and tried again. He did not answer. About 10-15 minutes later, he finally called to say he could not do the interview. I am not at liberty to give you his reasons why, I can only say that he cancelled.
Had I known prior to Ron's interview that we wouldn't have Jason on, I would have dedicated the entire 35 minutes to him, and you might have gotten more satisfaction from this than you currently have. I knew there was much more to be heard from Ron, so before the interview ever went to air, actually about 30 minutes after we interviewed him, I had already asked Jordan Breen to put him on his show to get to whatever we couldn't.
