The panel was organized by Judy Chevalier, Yale University and moderated by Peter B.

The AEA and The Washington Post co-hosted a workshop for female economists on how to excel in media interviews at the 2020 AEA Meetings in San Diego.

What makes a great media interview? How do you prep for TV versus radio versus "print"? How do you pitch a reporter? How can you get your point across without too much jargon? Should you answer questions outside your research or field? Top journalists share insider tips and conduct practice interviews to help female economists enhance their media skills. The speakers include Heather Long, The Washington Post, Steve Liesman, CNBC, Jeanna Smialek, The New York Times, Stacey Vanek Smith, NPR, and Greg Ip, The Wall Street Journal.
