I was recently thrown into the public arena for my firearms and legal experience. I spoke on more than a dozen radio shows nationwide for less than a week when it appeared I might be asked to give TV interviews. Thanks to my wife, Kimberly, a student of Lynda Foster, I was aware of Lynda’s background and able to set up a meeting with Lynda about TV interviews.
Lynda helped me understand the details of appearance, presentation and proper preparation for TV interviews. I began to apply her advice immediately because within days I was asked to be on both local CBS/NBC affiliates in Roanoke. The result was two successful pieces which ran during the evening news.
Approximately, seven days later, I was asked to appear on CNN’s Piers Morgan Tonight show with 4-hours’ notice. I focused on preparing for my live interview according to Lynda’s instructions to include proper attire, correct makeup, posture, attitude, tone, and other detailed preparations to present my talking points while maintaining control of the interview. There is no doubt the interview was a success.
