A. I think when you have a lot of time to have natural, spontaneous conversations, to interact with people, I think viewers get a real sense of who you are and what your core values are and how you relate to other people. And I think those kinds of venues just lend themselves to somebody like me who feels very comfortable in her own skin and wants to do more than just, you know. Look, I love serious news, and I'm a serious person. But I'm also kind of a spontaneous person who likes to interact with people.
I feel like at this point, I've really honed my interview skills and I'm really good hopefully at letting the interview subject shine and giving them a comfort zone where they can really be the best they are. Not always, because sometimes people deserve to squirm. And sometimes people need to be challenged on certain things. But, in general, you have to make people feel relaxed to get the best out of them. And, in some cases, you have to make them feel safe -- especially people who have been through something traumatic or have some hardship to talk about. And I think I've always been a naturally empathetic person. What I lack in IQ, I think I make up for in EQ.
