In the Media

Live Interviews:

Always make eye contact with the interviewer/audience, being aware of body language, hand gestures, voice quality and dress. Producers rate your performance.

Short, well thought out answers are best. Practice what you are going to say, especially for broadcast interviews.

Wear a watch so that you know when a broadcast segment is up, allowing ample time to wrap-up your thoughts.

Phone Interviews:
Ask for questions ahead of time. Avoid questions that speak off your agenda or that open up a Pandora’s box of things you do not want in the media.

You can also do print interviews via email if you feel more comfortable.

Make sure to mention your website!
