    4. 4. The Media Interview FIVE FACTS FOR INTERVIEWS The primary way you will deal with media, is through the interview. Most of the time, the interview topic will be about an issue, event or the mission of the organization. Interviews should be looked at as an opportunity to share your key messages and represent your organization. There are five basic points to remember as you’re doing interviews: •Be accessible •Be brief •Give credit where credit is due •Talk about the ‘greater cause’ •Be yourself
    5. 5. The Media Interview: Advance So you’ve been asked to sit down with a reporter and do a lengthy interview. Don’t look at it as an inconvenience; look at it as an opportunity! But listen to the Scout motto and “be prepared” before you face the cameras and microphones. So, here are some points you need to review before you give the interview: What point do YOU want to get across? (Who is the audience? How can you turn a negative subject/question into a positive answer? You can’t control the questions, but you can control the answers Anticipate the tough questions before you sit down with the reporter In dealing with those tough questions, NEVER say “No comment.” That implies guilt, or that you’re hiding something. Just say, “I’d rather not talk about it,” or “I’m not qualified to discuss that.”
    6. 6. The Do’s of a Media Interview Do •Prepare •Be positive •Keep your head up and smile •Look at the person interviewing you •Be on time—or preferably, early •Be presentable—no gum! •Repeat the question in the answer •Be enthusiastic •Be personable •Be available and cooperative •Be polite in difficult situations •Pause and think before your interview •Talk in ‘soundbites’
    7. 7. The Do’s of a Media Interview Don’t •Criticize anyone, including other reporters or outlets •Joke or use sarcasm—it doesn’t come across that way to the media •Say anything ‘off the record’ •Wear all-white tops to a TV interview—a little is OK, a lot is deadly to the lens •Use verbal fillers (‘um, yaknow, like…”) •Use slang •Lose your cool •Wear inappropriate logos •Avoid an interviewer •Forget that you are always ‘on’ •Be afraid! It’s a great opportunity—use it to your best advantage
