Media training tips from John DiPietro

Coming from a news media background, I have a pretty good idea of how the mind of a reporter works. They can be very skeptical and cynical people.

During the time I have been a client of yours, I have had some good success in getting call backs and interviews from queries that I have responded to. The other thing is this:


I always read one of their other pieces, then COMMENTED ON IT TO THEM. This brought me into a more friendly relationship with them. If you ever want to do a tele-gig on pre-interview homework, I would be happy to do one with you.

I think that the research I did on the two people who interviewed me yesterday really did some good!
