Media

Everyone has a story to share! I want to share yours.

I am the Atlanta Bureau Chief for Nexstar Media Group. Nexstar owns nearly 200 TV stations in more than 100 cities across the United States. We reach 60%+ of US households and 100 local news websites and 300+ apps. As an Atlanta based correspondent, I cover TV news stories focused on politics and health.

If you would like to be interviewed for a TV news segment, here are some guidelines:

To help streamline our interview, please email B-roll (pictures, videos) for the story (via WeTransfer) to my email address: aseshadri@nexstar.tv. If this is your first on-air TV interview, don’t worry! I’ve created an interview checklist to make this process easier.

Please complete the media form with a 2 line story summary:

  • Stories are about people for people
  • Be specific on the who, what, where, when, why and how
  • Use analogies or comparisons to break down complicated details
  • Share specific information on the new, now, and next
  • A few facts or stats are helpful to put things in context
  • How do you feel about this topic? Share your unique perspective
  • Speak conversationally with “one thought per sentence”
  • People want to know who the story benefits and who is most impacted
  • Stories should have an emotional connect and be memorable
  • Speak in your own voice, be authentic and give people a reason to care
  • Your audience is typically a 25-54 year old TV news viewer
  • A great story should have a beginning, middle and end!

Thank you and good luck!
