In some cases you can use Digital Anarchy's Flicker Free to improve this. I have used it on drone videos which have step-like exposure fluctuations and it helped considerably:

OTOH I had an interview case similar to yours and it was less useful there -- I ended up keyframing the whole thing by hand. I think Digital Anarchy has a demo version so you could try it. Be advised it is very compute-intensive and takes a while to run, plus there are various tuning parameters so you often end up running it multiple times to adjust it optimally.

This video describes how to use the After Effects color stabilizer to fix or improve this type of problem:
