Tips for calling All Sides with Ann Fisher

Prepare Your Question/Comment - You will be asked by the call screener for your name, location and question/comment.

Make Your Point Quickly & Briefly – Be prepared to give the call screener a quick one sentence summary of what you will say or ask.

Turn Off Your Radio - Turn the sound off on your radio when it is your turn to talk. Leaving your radio on will cause interference with the broadcast.

Don’t Use a Speakerphone - Speaker phones do not provide broadcast-quality sound. Your best bet, if you have one, is to use a "hands-free" telephone headset.

If you have a disability and would like a transcript or other accommodation you can request an alternative format.
