Secrets From an Interviewing ProfessionalKerri Miller

It might be the biggest challenge we face in our profession: getting our client-interviewees to open up their hearts and memories, to show us the stories of their lives. That's why we're thrilled to announce the keynote speaker for our symposium: radio journalist Kerri Miller of Minnesota Public Radio (MPR).

Miller's a longtime interviewing pro, with hundreds of interviews to her credit, talking with authors, scholars, politicians, and newsmakers from across the world, and with callers from every point on the opinion spectrum. Her presentation will offer the wisdom of her many years as the respected host of a renowned morning talk show on MPR. Few of us will hear her without taking away a brand-new layer of how-to.

Miller is also the host of Talking Volumes, a literary collaboration between the Star Tribune and Minnesota Public Radio that invites high-profile authors to the Twin Cities for live interviews in a theater setting.

Miller's skills have also been honed by her work in television. She's a winner of the Society of Professional Journalists National Achievement Award, the Minnesota Broadcasters Award, and the Gracie Award from the Alliance for Women in Media.
