Upcoming video: Interview DOs & DON'Ts by Nikky Raney

The next Journalism 101 video will discuss and act out the dos and don'ts of interviews. The interviews are specifically for print or web - not the type of interviews a broadcast journalist would conduct for a television show or any other sort of broadcast.

The video will help show how to conduct interviews with a few small but important tricks to getting the best experience & best information out of every interview.

A preview of a few of the dos and don'ts include:

  • Don't interrupt your source.
  • Don't ask misleading questions.
  • Ask questions that only that person can answer.
  • Don't rely on digital recorders - make sure to take notes.
  • Prepare questions beforehand, but don't feel like you need to stick to those questions.
More to come. Josh Grattan will assist in acting out and showing how the dos and don'ts apply.
