When the Interview is Over

Answer

Tip 8: Ask them what quotes, details, or stories they're going to use from you.

They can’t show you the whole story. But if you ask them, they can and should tell you what details about you they’re going to include.

You can say: “Could you please tell me what specific stories and details about me you plan to include? There may be something personal about me in there that I don’t want to be in the news.”


Tip 9: Ask them to send you the link to the story once it comes out.

They should already have your contact info, so they can send you the story when it’s out. 

Most journalists will agree to this because they’re grateful that you helped them with their article or segment.
