Tips on… Handling the media
- By: Kallur Suresh
Being interviewed on the radio or television can be a nerve-racking experience. It can be especially traumatic if it is going on air live. It is also a good opportunity to get your views across to a large number of people. Confidence comes with experience, but there is always a first time.
If you are going to be on television, dress appropriately and look presentable. Accept make up if it's offered.
Answer the question asked rather than what you wish had been asked. Avoid being distracted by the lights, cameras, and production crew.
