Media interview vetting

Business leaders are often asked to be a source for media interviews, both print and broadcast. To determine how reporters assess whether or not a CEO or other leaders are considered qualified, credible interview sources, a recent survey was conducted by the Public Relations Global Network (PRGN).

It asked reporters from around the globe, including from Arizona, to name key factors they consider during the interview-vetting process. The responses revealed the following:

• 85 percent look at industry/market knowledge and expertise.

• 53 percent consider professional track record.

• 41 percent analyze past news coverage.

• 40 percent assess the CEO’s personality.
