Duke University provides technical support in its radio and television studio facilities for on-campus broadcast news media interviews with faculty and administrators. These facilities are conveniently located and allow our professors to share their expertise with local and national audiences, in live or pre-taped interviews.
While we make every effort to accommodate broadcast interview requests, we are not staffed as an around-the-clock service. Please try to schedule interviews as far ahead as possible, and, whenever possible, during normal business hours.
To arrange for an interview, please work through your Duke communications contact. If you are not already working with communications staff member, please contact:
