How To Get A Story On Aero-TV News/Feature Programming
How do I submit a story idea or lead to Aero-TV?
If you would like to submit a story idea or lead, please contact Jim Campbell via the link below.
Please include the following information when submitting a story idea or lead: who the intended subject is, a general story outline of said subject, important dates or deadlines for the story lead, and any appropriate contact information for both yourself and related subjects.
What kind of content is welcome?
The Aero-TV crew is always enthusiastic about new ideas and leads that are provided by our viewers.
It is our aim to provide aviation coverage that our viewers find important, relevant, and meaningful to the industry. If you believe that you have such a story, please do not hesitate to contact us; however, please bear in mind that some stories are better suited for our print department rather than our video department.
What is Aero-TV looking for when reviewing story submissions?
When reviewing story submissions, our production crew is looking for three main elements: does the feature idea provide interesting visual elements, is it newsworthy, or does it share a compelling story? When we use the term “visually interesting,” we are referring to our ability, as a video production crew, to document the story in a dynamic way.
For example, if you have a lead story on new aircraft being developed, access would be an extremely relevant consideration: will we be able to show imagery of the new aircraft? Will we have access to the location where the aircraft is being developed and built? Will we be able to either shoot or obtain footage of the aircraft in flight?
Such questions help us determine whether we will be able to provide our viewers with visual representations of the presented story.
Finally, the Aero-TV crew remains committed to our quest of sharing the heart of aviation with our viewers. We are looking for stories that demonstrate this passion and commitment both for the field of aviation, as well as its impact on the community at large.
No story is considered “small” in our eyes; if an aviator or an aviation-related story has touched you, we want to hear about it. These are the elements that make up this great industry and we want to share them with our viewers.
