Long ago and far away (in a time that seems VERY far away to me now), I was the communications director to the First Lady of Ohio. In that role I regularly prepped her for interviews, sent out press release, wrote drafts of speeches, and generally tried to get decent coverage of the issues she cared about. I haven’t thought about the day-to-day tasks of that job in a long time, but reading through SBL’s Guide for Academics and the Media (a pdf), brought it all back, vividly. I think the guide is quite useful, and is full of advice that works beyond academe. So, if you have to deal with the media, you might consider taking the advice found there and using it well.
