quick facts
Quick Facts
  • The person you’re interviewing can be referred to as: the interviewee, the newsmaker, the guest, or the talking head.
  • Quotes pulled from the interview are called sound bytes or actualities. (duh)
  • Newspaper reporters have it easier! Why?
    • They can go into depth with their interviews.
    • We have limited time, especially for our Tomahawk actualities.
before the interview
Before the Interview
  • Do your research.
    • Don’t waste time asking questions that the public already knows the answer to.
    • Ex: Asking Dr. Williams how long she has been our principal.
  • Warm up the talking head?
    • Usually, it helps an interview to give the talking head the questions ahead of time. This way, he or she is prepared to answer the questions.
    • Unless you are trying to catch the interviewee by surprise (maybe a controversial interview), this is an excellent technique.
during the interview
During the Interview
  • Sound Quality
    • Outside the Studio (nat sound, classroom noises, etc.)
    • Inside the Studio (mic adjustments & checks)
  • Questions
    • Open-ended (“Do you like turtles?” vs “What do you like about turtles?”)
    • Leading (“Were you upset when you saw the photos?” vs “How did you feel when you saw the photos?”)
    • Tough
      • Not a great idea for MHS interviews; can be irritating or confrontational. (“Many students say that your PowerPoint Presentations are stupid and ineffective. How do you respond?”)
during the interview1
During the Interview
  • Listening
    • Pay attention to the interviewee’s answers!
      • Awkward Interviewer Responses: “That sounds truly amazing.”
      • Annoyed Interviewee: “I already answered that question.”
    • Potential actualities
    • Do any of the answers sound “fishy?”
    • Do you have enough information?
  • Finish up
    • You may want to ask the talking head for a place for listeners to go for more information.
    • And/or, “Would you like to add anything?”
after the interview
After the Interview
  • Team up with the fact checker.
  • Edit the actuality/sound byte.
  • Give the copywriter a lead-in.
  • Thank the interviewee; usually, an email is appropriate.
what else
What else?
  • Off the record
    • Bad: We can’t use anything anyone tells us off the record.
    • Good: However, it can lead us to someone who will.
  • Man on the street
    • Take a question that an ordinary citizen may like to give a comment on, station yourself (or not), and ask the question to those passing by.
  • Phone interview
    • Good: convenience, pajamas
    • Bad: interruptions, bad service
your interview project
Your Interview Project
  • Part 1:
    • Select a noteworthy teacher, faculty member, or student and research that person. (You must have at least one outside source).
    • Prepare a half-page proposal outlining why you wish to interview this person and what you hope to get out of the interview. (Show your research).
    • Once your proposal has been approved, contact that person and get his or her approval for the interview.
    • Create ten questions, and get them approved.
      • (Warm up the interviewee)?
