As a recognized media training industry leader, we designed our live online classes to give you immediate results.
We’ve been recognized as industry leaders for a long time. We’ve trained many thousands of people in our media training classes, including hundreds of top executives. Our book, The Media Training Bible, has been Amazon’s top-selling media interview training book since its release. One of our web properties became the world’s most-visited media training website.
We focus relentlessly on one thing: helping you realize immediate results. We want you to leave your online media training class with new skills that empower you to be a more effective media spokesperson right away. If you ever deal with challenging media situations, we want to infuse you with the confidence that you not only know how to answer tough questions, but can do so with grace and poise.
Mastering anything—particularly something as tied to professional success as media interviewing—takes time. We’re committed to delivering the best live online media training classes in the industry, ones that focus on your long-term growth rather than a standalone one-time experience.

"I consider them an extension of our senior management team."
We’ve worked with the Throughline team for more than a decade, and I attribute the dramatic rise in the quality of our presentations and media relations directly to their guidance. I continue to rely on them for their invaluable perspective on both the style and substance of my most essential communications and consider them an extension of our senior management team.
Unlike other companies that don't limit registrations to online classes, we restrict our online public speaking classes to 12 participants, ensuring more individualized attention for each participant.
You’ll learn the most essential media interviewing skills—but you’ll go deeper than the basics. We’ll teach you the subtle points that often get overlooked—but can make a huge difference.
There’s no generic cookie-cutter instruction here. We’ll give you a template to work on the real issues you’re likely to be interviewed about.
Many group classes emphasize body language and delivery. While those skills are vitally important, they rely upon the quality of your ideas and messages. We’ll give you detailed feedback on both.
Other companies promise interaction—but primarily through Zoom features like polls and surveys. With Throughline, you’ll have the opportunity to engage with live trainers, practice, expand your range, and receive personalized feedback.
Many firms don't advertise who will lead your trainings, meaning you could end up with an inexperienced trainer. With us, you're guaranteed one of the firm's two partners. Since 2004, we've helped media interviewees prepare for live interviews on broadcast news outlets, major announcements on financial news programs, conversations about thorny topics with print reporters, and a nationally broadcast presidential debate. Whatever your speaking situation, we have the experience to help.
In this free e-book, you will learn how to develop a compelling media message, deliver it effectively, and modify your approach to meet the medium.
Our proven teaching methodology, which has been delivered successfully hundreds of times to thousands of people since 2004, features a diverse mix of relevant activities designed to help participants grow their skill set meaningfully—often dramatically—right away. During the media training class, you will learn through:
You’ll deliver several practice interviews during your one-on-one session. After each round, you’ll receive specific feedback on your message and delivery. We’ll record your practice interviews, review key excerpts with you, and send you your video file.
We’ll ask you the questions a fair but skeptical interviewer might ask and empower you with strong answers that defang reporters—and win over audiences.
Our fast-moving lectures are packed with real-life video examples and opportunities to practice new skills, and are led by dynamic trainers who know how to keep your attention.

No other national company offers such personalized end-to-end service for their media training group class participants. After you leave our class, you’ll continue your learning through:
You’ll receive in-depth articles once a month for ten months following your training. These reports will go deeper into areas that will help you learn, practice, and refine new skills throughout the year. Sample topics might include advanced media “bridging” techniques, a deeper dive into sound bites, and handling a media crisis.
You can schedule a free one-hour call with one of our trainers within one year of your training, during which you can discuss an upcoming interview, ask us to review a video of an interview you recently delivered, or anything else that would help you advance your learning.
Once a year, you’ll be invited to a live clients-only webinar, during which we will offer you a refresher, introduce advanced techniques, and answer your questions. We’ll send you the video if you miss it.
You’ll receive our 254-page bestselling book The Media Training Bible, worksheet templates, and videos of your practice talks.
A 10% discount on our standard hourly consulting fee for six months following your training.

Throughline’s media training provided such a helpful and hands-on workshop for our team! Brad was extremely well-prepared and communicated effectively with our staff to better reach our team goals. The lessons he taught were immediately impactful, and each individual he worked with was impressed with his style, professionalism, and transferrable tips.
