There are a number of things to consider when doing a media interview. Interviewees and spokespeople must not only focus on what to say, but they need to practice their nonverbal communication skills as well. Whether a media interview is for print, television, or radio, there are a number of strategies CEO’s, executives, and subject matter experts can use to help their media interview run smoothly and help them communicate effectively, especially in a crisis.
To inspire online discussion, crisis communications expert Gerard Braud asks his social media followers, public relations professionals, and media relations experts, “What’s the best piece of advice you were ever given for doing media interviews?” Have you heard one piece of advice that has stuck with you over the years?
