Why You Should Use an Operator-Assisted Service for Your Media Calls

Many PR professionals handle media calls using their own phones or a basic teleconferencing service. This works until an interview runs over time, you have a no-show, or technical issues on the line disrupt interview proceedings.

With Media Conferencing, you’ll have an experienced operator dedicated to oversee your media calls. The operator will connect and disconnect journalists to your talent, formally introduce them, and make sure that the schedule is strictly adhered to.

What you can expect:

  • Confidentiality: Managed Interviews ensure your talent’s privacy is protected. Our operators are specifically trained to handle calls of a sensitive nature, and all staff are on signed NDAs.
  • Time Management: Your interview schedule is strictly adhered to by the operator. All interviews will be connected and disconnected at their scheduled times. This also frees up time for busy publicists, as they are not required to be present for the interview.
  • A Professional Approach: Before the interview begins, the talent will be briefed on how things will run. This ensures that they are comfortable and ready to begin. Once interviews start, each journalist will be formally introduced to the talent
