Al Martin, host of WKAR's Current Sports, invites new appointed Michigan State vice president and director of intercollegiate athletics, Bill Beekman, to discuss his hire. Beekman was hired in the interim position back in February and impressed interim President John Engler and the MSU coaching staff. Beekman has been met with criticism from the MSU body, as many have been critical of the "in-house" pick in light of the Larry Nassar scandal. Beekman provides his take on the climate of MSU today and states his case as the right man to lead athletics here on campus.
