First, decide whether you will grant the interview. To help you decide, here are some questions to ask:
What is the subject of the interview?
Are you the appropriate person to answer questions about the topic?
Who is the reporter and where does he/she work?
What will be the format of the interview? Live? Taped? Telephone? Is it a feature story, or a news story?
Where will the interview be conducted and how long will the interview be?
What is the reporter’s deadline?
