Good Things Come To Those Who Bait

lure In a live interview, if you want the reporter to ask you the questions you want to be asked - then reel the reporter in. In other words, don’t just deliver answers to the reporter’s questions.  Offer up a an enticement answer, a “hook”  that leads the reporter to ask your planned/desired follow-up question.

For example:

YOU: "But that's just one example of the incredible things we've seen in our research." 

REPORTER: "Really? Such as?"

YOU: "Well, for instance..."

Dangle the hook,  cast your answers to elicit the desired follow-up question, and use the proper bait.
