How are things going for O.J. Simpson? Ask him yourself tonight at 6 p.m., when the Juice sits down and answers viewer questions for a televised online interview with MN1.com, a Dallas-area IPTV network primarily devoted to covering stocks that trade for under $5.
MN1.com spokesman Mike Gould tells Radar that Simpson sought the network out about the possibility of an interview earlier this year—he was so excited by the online operation's "purity of format" that he asked not to be compensated. "It's an exciting enough opportunity for O.J. that he doesn't want money," says Gould. While the network, he says, is full of "O.J. agnostics," he also promises "Everything comes up during the interview—his football career, the trial, the If I Did It book," a bold claim for an interview that hasn't happened yet.
The first half of the interview is scheduled to be hosted by MN1.com personality Kate Delaney. In the second half, the network plans to have Simpson respond to questions from penny-trading Texans with high-speed Internet.
"We're no stranger to high-profile interviews," Gould adds confidently. "I mean, after all, MN1.com has interviewed almost all of the top club DJ's in Dallas and Austin."
