I was recently reading a text on YouTube channel. The sentence written was

It was a great pleasure to apoear on Roqe media this week and be interviwed by Mr.James, talking about our YouTube channel.

How this sentence starts with a past form and contunue with a passive form after a conjenction. Please advise what is the meaning of "Be interviewed by" can we use only "interviewed" instead of "be interviewed"?

It was a great pleasure to [appear] on Roqe media this week and be [interviewed] by Mr.James, talking about our YouTube channel.

(1) is fine. It has used parallelism to omit the second 'to' in (2) below, which is a full version of the example.

2 It was a great pleasure to appear on Roqe media this week and to be interviewed by Mr.James, talking about our YouTube channel.

It was a great pleasure to appear on Roqe media this week and interviewed by Mr.James, talking about our YouTube channel.

(3) is not grammatical, as 'interviewed' is in past tense and hence not parallel with 'to appear', which is in the infinitive form.
