Speaking to the Media: TV and Radio Interviews

Partnership for the Public Good / Cornell ILR Offices
617 Main Street
Suite 300

Learn how to share your story and message in interviews for TV and radio. 

These interviews are a big opportunity to advance your advocacy, but being on camera or in front of a microphone can be intimidating! We’ll discuss how to prepare for an on-camera/on-air interview, what questions to ask in advance, how to communicate effectively during these typically short media appearances, and how to increase the impact of your segment after it airs. Hear directly from two experienced local broadcasters on what makes for interesting and effective interviews. In-person participants will have the opportunity to practice responding to questions on camera and receive feedback on their interviews.

This workshop will be hybrid, with spots for 20 participants in our classroom at 617 Main Street and more participants via Zoom. Register to join in-person by emailing; register to join on Zoom at this link.
