The World’s Best Media Training and Digital Newsroom Agency

Russ Rhea is the Anchor and Training Director for the Predictive Media Network.

Russ and his network of veteran reporters and experts help clients prepare media interviews, presentations and public testimony. Likewise, his digital team designs and manages digital newsrooms so clients can effectively reach influencers and reporters.

Why Predictive Media Training is Better

No ambush stunts. No embarrassing ‘gotcha’ setups.

The Predictive Media workshops are designed to build on your strengths and coach up your potential. The super-friendly format makes learning, even in front of a camera, fun, supportive and productive.

Forget the 50-page three-ring binder you’ll never look at again.

Predictive Interviewing is easy to understand and even easier to learn. The entire curriculum folds up and fits in your pocket. It’s a desk drawer reference you’ll keep for years.

Want to hear former reporters tell story after story about their years in the trenches? Entertaining? Maybe. Instructive? Not even!

The Predictive Interviewing model reveals the questions reporters are likely to ask and in the most probable sequence. With Predictive Interviewing, you’ll learn how to control even the most challenging interview.

Clients Love Russ' Training Workshops
