Broadcasting and webcasting: pre-interview checks and tips
February 12, 2013 Leave a comment
I’m gathering some information on the checks broadcasters — and journalists putting audio or video content online — make before meeting their interviewees.
I’m interested in checks on the venue (access, sound and lighting) and what information and advice you give to interviewees, and their PRs. Also how far ahead do people give information for the story, for writing the script for for links? What is reasonable to ask for, and how far do interviewees deliver? Do you try to speak to guests or interviewees in advance?
Please use the comments to jot down your thoughts, and I will post a summary. If you’d rather your input didn’t appear in the comments, feel free to email me instead. Do let me know if you are a journalist/broadcaster, a PR, or a programme guest!
