Discussing Your Media Relations Tips: Is It Ever Okay to Ask a Reporter a Question?

By Gerard Braud

Earlier this week we posed a discussion question for corporate communicators and public relations professionals. They have weighed in by posting on social media and in today’s video I am sharing their tips as well as my expert opinion.

One of our contributors says it is sometimes okay to ask a reporter a question, depending on the context of the interview and the relationship with the reporter. Other contributors offer great tips for asking reporters questions before the media interview begins to ensure that it runs smoothly and that you won’t get taken out of context. Listen to the video to hear my expert opinion.  Please comment here on the blog or on social media whether you agree with the responses we gathered.

Please join in on our discussions each week by sharing your best practices and subscribe to the weekly question on the BraudCast YouTube Channel to participate.
