We’re excited to honor our #NexstarNation Digital Content Influencers for August! These folks have gone above and beyond to work towards goals, improve their station’s digital content offerings, and assist their regional neighbors.
☑️ East Coast: Emma North of WRIC consistently leads the station’s top authors list for her work on breaking news and enterprise content throughout her shifts. She takes the lead in the newsroom during the evenings and ensures that they continue to have the latest updates available.
☑️ Gulf: Dionne Johnson of KLFY was a top author across the region in August. Her stories are regularly shared across the area benefitting numerous sites.
☑️ Northeast: WWLP’s Ashley Shook has a deep understanding of Springfield’s digital audience and that’s reflected in the site’s numbers. She’s been in the #1 spot all year in wwlp.com — both for users and pageviews.
☑️ Midwest: Jacob Burbrink at WXIN/WTTV is a data wizard who has produced fantastic interactive content to support the station’s crime-tracking coverage.
☑️ West: Fareeha Rehman of KRON is consistently one of the top authors in the West region. She’s a content-producing machine – posting about 30 stories each week.
☑️ East: WBOY’s Shyla Parsons flagged a local homicide arrest with Ohio ties and collaborated with WCMH to alert them to break the story in their DMA. Her effort helped turn a decently performing story into a top story for all of the sites in West Virginia.
☑️ Plains: When you’re committed to the big story, big things can happen. In anticipation of a trial, this month’s digital influencer KX News’ Keith Darnay crafted a strong digital content plan centered around SEO and AP style best practices that ended up producing big results!
☑️ Southwest: In August, Kimberly Querry-Thompson of KFOR is the highest performing byline in the Southwest. Kim spends her days at KFOR consistently scanning the internet looking for topics of interest. She scours government and municipal sites for localized opportunities and stays connected with small-town publishers to find stories that serve larger audiences.
Congrats to our winners and thanks for your outstanding effort and contributions!
