The Other Side of the Mic: Tips for Conducting Media Interviews webinar on Wednesday, July 11 at 1:00-2:00 PM CST, sponsored by the University of New England’s Master of Science in Applied Nutrition program. Increasingly many RDs, rather than being the interviewees, are leading audio and/or video recorded interviews for their personal brands, company websites, blogs, and podcasts. Conducting a media interview with a guest expert takes skill and concentration to guide the interviewee to share the best information and insight within a specific time frame. Former CNN executive producer and correspondent, RDN Carolyn O’Neil, shares tips for successful interviewing from the other side of the mic. Space is limited so please register today. This activity is awarded 1 CDR credit.
