How to handle media interviews

Media-Speak is a one-day media relations program that is geared to perfecting your ability to handle print, radio, telephone and television interviews.

The pressure of television interviews, the impersonal touch of radio or phone interviews or the strain of reporter-writer interviews can be intimidating.

This fast moving seminar workshop also includes techniques for more professional corporate video interviews, appearances and video conferences.


Media-Speak consists of 20 modules presented in 3 sections. Highlights include:

  • Media interview weaknesses 

  • Apprehension and nervousness 

  • Voice inflection 

  • Gestures 

  • Body language 

  • Fielding questions 

  • Keeping control of the interview


Media-Speak participants say the real-life benefits of the program are:

  • The various ways to stay in control of the media situation 

  • How to handle difficult questions 

  • The way to maintain composure during the interview 

  • The skills to develop key phrases and priority messages to strengthen your message 

  • Ways to be poised and confident under the pressure of a crisis interview 

  • The way to develop a sense of content and timing in your presentation 

  • The essentials of on-camera posture as they are discussed and demonstrated 

  • Perfection of gestures that will enhance your professional image and eliminate unflattering nervous movements 

  • A series of live interviews are conducted so that you can practice these skills in a progressive and confidence-building manner

For immediate improvement which will take you and your team to a higher level, contact Frederick J. Knapp Associates. Let us know when or how we can help you.
