There is no time like the present to get used to being interviewed and I am not referring to the Judges interview during your pageant. I am talking about getting interviewed by the media. This is a different type of interview and the sooner you can start grooming yourself for this type of attention the better.
I always advise getting started with a podcast or radio interview, get your message perfected first, then start looking at local news coverage or internet TV shows. Most contestants ask me what they should talk about or pitch to a host, the answer is simple, talk about something you consider yourself to be an expert on and your passionate about. Your Platform should be coming to mind, as this is something you are passionate about, which makes it easier to come up with content.
Start making a list of things you'd be agreeable to be interviewed on, then from that list, choose one or two to get started. In our next post we will talk about how to create a sample topic, summary and sample questions. Stay tuned!
