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.

Once the story airs, please promote the piece on your social media platforms and tag me (#archSTORIES) on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIN.

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

  • Stories are about people for people

  • 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

Thank you and good luck!
