Talking on the radio can be daunting. It can be an unfamiliar setting, especially when being interviewed live. You might not get asked questions you want to answer. However, running for election means getting your profile out there and clearly articulating your message on the radio is one of the best ways to build awareness of your campaign. You need to be authentic and confident while on-air to convince voters you are prospective politician.
Our upcoming training in Near FM’s Dublin studio will help you tackle radio interviews head on. Our trainer Pat Montague, Dorothee Meyer-Holtkamp (Outreach Coordinator, Near FM) and Elaine King (Near TV Coordinator) will talk a small group through interview techniques, how to answer tough questions and tackling nerves. You will get a chance to go on radio in a safe and supportive environment. Each participant will record a short interview and receive feedback.
