Pre-Interview

  • Do your homework before the interview (background info./secondary sources/angle)
  • Seeking the opposing point of view strengthens the story.  Set up interviews with several sources with several points of view. Rule of thumb - at least three diverse, credible sources
  • Prepare open-ended questions - not one answer or yes/no answer. Use follow up questions
  • Contact the individual early to set up a time for a phone call, meeting, or e-mail conversation

Interview etiquette

  • Introduceself, explain the purpose of your interview, ask politely and say thank you (remember they don’t have to do this and are taking time to do you a favor)
  • Use respectful language (don’t be defensive, don’t use slang, don’t interrupt, use respectful salutations, use complete sentences)
  • Be prepared - have note book, working pen (and backup just in case), and, if possible, a recorder
  • DO NOT ASK: “Can you give a quote for this?”
  • ASK: Who, What, Where, When Why, How (especially these last two) – get specific answers; ask follow-up questions
slide4

If you have to interview someone through e-mail or Facebook (which is not favorable – if possible, do a face-to-face interview)

  • Follow all interview etiquette for a face-to-face interview
  • Use correct, standard English (NO abbrev like lol, u, thnx, BTW)
  • Send a thank you e-mail after you have received a response

Direct Quotes

- Quotes printed word for word exactly as the speaker said them are direct quotes. These words appear inside quotation marks.

- Direct quotes should be used the most and are used when a source expresses an opinion or uses detailed/descriptive wording.

- Direct quotes should match exactly as what is on the signed interview sheet; split longer quotes into two – quotes shouldn’t be longer than three lines

Partial Quotes
  • Sometimes it might work better to use a portion of a quote to convey the source’s thoughts than to use an entire quote. When reporters do this, they put the portion of the quote they do use inside quotation marks.
  • Use partial quotes when you need to use a speaker’s exact words but the entire direct quote might be too long or too confusing for the reader.
  • Do not take the quote out of context
