The Media Experience

You have a great story you want to share. Now what? Your business has encountered a crisis and reporters are requesting an interview. Now what?

 

Media interviews can be intimidating and even a little scary, but they don’t have to be. The Media Experience is a media-training exercise that helps you prepare for a media interview, whether on camera or over the phone. Sarah’s training comes from experience on both sides of the camera, as a reporter and spokesperson. Her on-camera drills help develop skills needed to successfully convey your message, recover quickly, prepare for difficult questions, and avoid the dreaded answer, “No comment.”

 

Offered in single or multi-day packages, The Media Experience is tailored specifically for our clients’ needs. Contact us for more information about pricing.

TEAM

Sarah Holsapple

Owner

Former reporter turned company spokesperson, Sarah Holsapple’s expertise in public relations and media relations comes from her experience on both sides of the camera.

 

Sarah worked in various Indiana news markets before moving to Indianapolis. Highlights of her TV career include interviewing then Senators Hillary Clinton and Barak Obama as they stumped their way through Indiana during the primary election in 2008. Sarah eventually left TV to work as a spokesperson for former Indianapolis Mayor Greg Ballard and then Citizens Energy Group.

 

Now as the owner of Holsapple Communications, Sarah puts her storytelling skills to use each day for her clients. Whether garnering national media attention for a device to help people combat opioid withdrawal, working with the mayor’s staff to pitch local media stories about new businesses opening or prepping state-level directors for media interviews, Sarah believes every client has a story to tell.

 

Sarah graduated from the Stanley K. Lacy Executive Leadership Series in 2015, was an active member in the Indianapolis Junior League for nearly a decade and currently serves on the board for Herron High School Young Life. Sarah and her husband live in Indianapolis with their two children.
