Story ideas?

HOW TO GET ON TV

How do you find story ideas?

I get this question a lot, how do I find the stories I tell? 

Easy answer– just be curious. 

Journalism school taught me to think about stories that would fit in these categories,

proximity,

significance,

timeliness,

conflict & controversy,

human interest.

What I have learned– listening, asking more questions, Facebook groups is the real answer.

Everyone has a story. Many stories are important to tell to hold people in power accountable. One thing I love about telling stories is the responsibility. Someone trusts YOU to get it right and portray them is a light that is accurate. I took this very seriously. I focused more on small businesses and evergreen stories that could be about anything.
