Media Training Tips: More Ideas to Ace Your TV Interview for Publicity

Last week’s article on how to ace your TV interviews led a few readers to offer their suggestions:

Jean Feingold:
Great tips! Years ago I took a seminar on relations with the media. As part of the course, we were taped in a mock interview and then got to see how we looked and sounded. Doing something like that would probably help most people. I learned I blinked way too often which looked odd on camera. Like you, they also taught us to have three things in mind we wanted to get out and to find a way to work them into the conversation no matter what we were asked.

One other important thing to remember is if something controversial is going on, reporters will ask about it. Never say, “No comment.” Be prepared to deal with the sensitive issue by responding with an answer that puts the best possible face on it.

To your excellent list, I’d add: supply a list of ten questions you’d like to be asked (and the 10th is where people can learn more about you/get in touch with you/get your book–choose one). Many interviewers will go right down the list.
