The Art of the Media Interview

  1. Why speak with the media?
  2. What is a media interview?
  3. A media interview is a call or meeting with a reporter or editor for print, online, radio or television news. These calls can focus on a range of topics, including company strategy, industry trends or topics that the reporter is covering. Most reporters are looking for information that no one else has published, so it pays to do your homework.
  4. Understand your audience. Research the reporter. Prepare to discuss your story. Gather supporting elements.
  5. Know your message. Stick with two or three key talking points. Stay concise.
  6. .
  7. On or off the record, be cautious of what you tell a reporter. Never say anything you would not want to see in print.
  8. Editors may ask you to review a quote for accuracy but never ask to review the complete article. That’s a big no no.
  9. An interview should be a two-way conversation. Do not cut off a reporter, and make sure she can digest everything you have said.
  10. Stop for a few seconds to think before continuing. Keep your speech at an even rate. Take a breather.
  11. Mastering the art of a media interview isn’t difficult, but it does require practice. Follow these tips and you can join the ranks of interview rockstars.
