A reporter who’s been one of Idaho’s most widely-read journalists is stepping down next week.

For 14 years, Chadd Cripe has covered Boise State football for the Idaho Statesman. His articles and Tweets are consistently among the paper’s most popular coverage, sports or otherwise. Next week, he’ll leave the beat and cover recreation and the outdoors.

Our Scott Graf invited Cripe to talk about his decision to leave that role. Their Wednesday conversation started about 20 minutes later than planned, as Cripe excused himself into one of our studios – laptop and smartphone in hand - and proceeded to break a story on the hiring of Boise State’s next offensive coordinator.

Cripe says having to drop everything and cover a developing story is typical.  

You can hear their conversation below.
