Have you ever wondered what it’s like to be a guest on a morning TV news show? Experts are often asked to come on-air to share advice with viewers, and doing live interviews is a great way for your organization to get exposure, or to promote a public event. Live interviews are the most challenging for novice spokespeople because there is no editing – it is live television. Last year I was on Good Day Sacramento several times and my friend Gus shot this behind-the-scenes video during one interview:
As you can see, there is a lot happening in the studio. To give a good live interview, you must prepare ahead of time, practice what you’re going to say and focus on the anchor during the interview so the things happening around you are not a distraction. Some tips on giving live interviews include:
The Boys and Girls Club of the Harbor Area hopes you will be “the one” to make a financial gift of support this year. The local nonprofit, which has been serving kids in Orange County for more than 70 years, today launched its annual fundraising campaign known as “It Just Takes One” with the goal of raising $110,000 over the course of six weeks. It Just Takes One is launching with great momentum thanks to a gift of $70,000 from Newport Beach philanthropist David Pyle, who offered the donation as a matching gift. Mr. Pyle is the founder and CEO of American Career College, and the Executive Chairman of the Board of West Coast University.
When I first heard about Brandman University student Bryan Fazio, I couldn’t believe it. Then, I met him and had the honor of helping him tell his story. He is a 25-year-old Navy veteran. You need to watch this piece I produced about him – it is amazing! Co-produced with Gustav Deutsch and videography direction by Eric Smith.
Bryan, you are a true inspiration!
My latest video producing – I used footage from the various commencement ceremonies we filmed this year and set it to a modern remixed version of ‘Pomp and Circumstance’ for this short piece to share via social media channels.
Happy New Year! I have launched a new blog on Brandman Hub and was thrilled to be live in-studio on Good Day Sacramento to talk about it.
Joe Attended the Final Rehearsal of Kathy Griffin’s new show debuting this week on Bravo
I’m a big fan of two-time Emmy winner Kathy Griffin and a long time ‘D-List’ devote, so you can imagine my delight when I learned about her new show on Bravo. After six seasons of ‘My Life on the D-List’ and 13 televised stand-up specials since 2005 (with two more to come later this year), the network premieres ‘Kathy’ this week (Thursdays, 10PM).
On Friday night I was in the audience for the final rehearsal of ‘Kathy’ at Sunset Bronson Studios in Hollywood. Joined by rising PR star Frank Fay (@frankfay), we enjoyed an intimate sneak peak at the new show and I have no doubt it will delight audiences and add to the growing legion of Kathy Griffin fans. I’m also certain that there will be a lot of bleeped out words, even for a late-night cable program. It was hilarious!
Bravo describes ‘Kathy’ as a one hour talk show where “the original gossip girl will have a whole hour to deflate the egos of everyone who is anyone and those who think they’re someone. ‘Kathy’ will showcase Griffin’s unique take on celebrities, co-workers, friends, politicians, and yes, even her own boxed-wine swilling mother, Maggie. She’ll be burning the last of her already very few bridges all while enforcing a clothing optional work environment.”
