Interviewing Principles Reporters conduct two kinds of interviews: The purpose is to gather information to explain an idea event or situation in the news.
The focus is on an individual. A news peg often is used to justify the profile. For effective interviews, reporters prepare carefully, and they ask questions that induce the source to talk freely.
Questions are directed at obtaining information on a theme that the reporter has in mind before beginning the interview.
If a more important theme emerges, the reporter develops it. The reporter notes what is said, how it is said and what is not said.
Sources are encouraged by the reporter's gestures and facial expressions to keep talking. In the stadium locker room, the half-dressed hurdler was stuffing his warm-up suit and track shoes into a battered black bag.
Seated on a bench nearby, a young man removed a pencil and a notepad from a jacket pocket. Mind if I ask you some questions?
This was not going to be easy, the reporter worried. The editor had told him to make sure he brought back a good story for tomorrow's paper, the day the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics would begin its outdoor track meet at the local college.
The tall, lithe young man standing in front of the bench was a world record holder in the hurdles, the editor had said, and worth a story for the sports section.
The reporter tried again. I go to the East coast, the West coast, here. They give me a ticket at school and I get on a bus or a plane and go.
My business is to run. Rebuffed, the reporter struggled to start the athlete talking again. Four Principles Back in the newsroom, the reporter told the editor about his difficulties. They seemed to begin with his first question about whether the athlete had been to the town before, he said.
His boss was not sympathetic. You might have used it to break the ice. Or you could have asked him about the condition of the track, something he knows about. He knew that interviewing is not easy for young reporters, that it can be perfected only through practice.
That could make an interesting focus for the piece. This incident illustrates the four principles of interviewing: Prepare carefully, familiarizing yourself with as much background as possible.
Establish a relationship with the source conducive to obtaining information. Ask questions that are relevant to the source and that induce the source to talk.
Listen and watch attentively. Because much of the daily work of the journalist requires asking people for information, mastery of interviewing techniques is essential. The four principles underlie the various techniques the reporter uses. Clearly, the sportswriter's troubles began when he failed to prepare by obtaining background about the athlete he was to interview.
Lacking background, the reporter was unable to ask questions that would draw out his source. Furthermore, he had failed to establish a rapport with the hurdler, so that the session was more like dentistry than journalism, with the reporter painfully extracting bits and pieces of information from an unwilling subject.
Fortunately, the reporter had listened carefully so that he managed to salvage something from the interview. If we analyze news stories, we will see they are based on information from several kinds of sources:MoreLaw collects information about lawyers, attorneys and law firms and civil cases.
