AOL's Julia Webb caught up with the world-class athlete (and class act) over the phone to chat everything from sun protection to meditation and the upcoming Tokyo Olympics.

At the end of each year I take time to reflect on the year that was and the one that lies ahead. I spend most of my time listening to radio stations, talking to people, and creating content, but gaining knowledge of new technology and business opportunities, developing trends, and areas where the radio business should further invest its energy is equally important to me.
