Megan Kelly’s Magic Mic – Sometimes You ARE The Message!

August 11, 2015

Professional 3 3836Smart communicators know that everyone loves a good story. Stories can convey a message or teach a lesson while keeping people engaged.  Most of the time you tell stories.  But once in a blue moon you get to BE the story. And when you do, it’s time to capitalize on the circus spotlight.  Consider this, Roger Ailes, President of Fox News, wrote a great book entitled,You Are The Message (one of my favorites). And, if I remember correctly, Donald Trump once made a statement about any publicity being good publicity.

The ongoing post-debate exchange between Megan Kelly and Donald Trump is an example of individuals becoming the story. So far in the saga, thanks to the magic of Ms. Kelly’s mic…and debate strategy, Fox got it’s biggest ever audience, Kelly gained greater national recognition and Trump continues to dominate the headlines and the polls.
