A media interview could lead to one of three outcomes:

  1. You nail it.
  2. You get through it.
  3. Your poor performance creates its own crisis.

Knowing how to prepare for a media interview increases the likelihood of a positive outcome.

Listen to a few of the mistakes we found in recent media interviews and livestreams to learn how to succeed in your next media interview.

  • The guffaw that turned a serious message from a member of the U.S. Cabinet into a joke.
  • Don’t call your own press conference on a whim on the side of the road, like Alec Baldwin.
  • Make sure the news you share on the Today Show is accurate and does not infringe on trademarks.
