Do you ever wonder how people get their stories featured on TV? I HAVE SOMETHING TO SAY got a hold of Deborah Mitchell, an Emmy-nominated TV producer who specializes in the art of giving a successful TV interview, to tell us how. During her years at CBS and ABC networks, Deborah managed thousands of live and taped programs, working with talents such as Andy Cohen, Julie Chen, Bryant Gumbel, Barbara Walters, Geraldo Rivera, Martha Stewart, and Chef Marcus Samuelsson. She produced for CBS News The Early Show, ABC’s Live with Regis and Kathie Lee, and was Supervising Producer and Co-Host on Geraldo, the daytime talk show. What type of story are news outlets looking for? What’s the best approach to address Diversity and Inclusion when creating original content? What are the pros and cons of LIVE streaming vs. pre-recorded programming? Well, we asked Deborah and she was very generous with the advice she shared on the best ways to share your message with the world using the traditional and digital mediums.
