The paper discusses interview as one of the main genres of rhetoric. Besides briefly introducing the division of rhetoric into several categories, the author focuses on the interview and some of its subcategories. Types of questions used in an interview which are crucial for the hypothesis are listed and explained in more detail. The main hypothesis of this paper is that the questions for each guest are structured according to profession and field of work of the guest, i.e. the type of questions changes with the guests. More elaborately, having in mind that different type of questions also carries different pragmatic function, one of the logical assumptions is that the interviewer who uses different types of questions has different intentions and expectations from their guest. This paper analyses 16 episodes of a weekly show ''Sunday at two'' (''Nedjeljom u dva") hosted by Aleksandar Stanković and divides them into two groups. The first group consists of politicians, and the second group is a mixture of people that belong to either culture,art or sports circle. Analysis confirmed hypothesis. Aleksandar Stanković asked 9.11% less open-type questions to guests that belong to the group with political background than to guests from the other group. He also asked 10.01% more closed-type questions, and 4.05% more suggestive questions to the politicians than the others. All things considered, the conclusion that can be drawed from this research is that the host of the show approaches politicians differently from sportsmen or people that are a part of cultural or art sphere.
