For nearly two decades, Nina Radetich was one of the most recognizable local television anchors in Las Vegas on both the NBC and ABC evening broadcasts. She covered several memorable stories in that time including a series on her experience as a Las Vegas Metropolitan Police recruit that won her an Edward R. Murrow award for journalistic excellence. She also won an Emmy for a story that took viewers behind the crime scene tape at the first murder of the year. But Nina’s main focus was the community. She helped raise more than $500,000 for the Rape Crisis Center of Southern Nevada through her charity event, Nina’s Night Out.
From her post on the anchor desk, Nina recognized that local news consumption was changing. More people were getting their news online and their headlines from Twitter. And in her final years as a journalist, Nina immersed herself in this new media to learn how it’s reshaping business, political, and personal communication.
After getting married in 2010, and having her first child 9 months later, Nina realized it was time to make an important choice for her family. So she left the TV news business to start her own company, Nina Radetich New Media Strategies. Now, as president, she works with businesses and individuals navigating the complex world of social media. Nina and her team help clients reach and engage potential customers on platforms like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and more. She shares much of what she’s learned about social media on her blog (www.ninaradetich.com), and her dog is known to write a guest post every now and again.
In her free time, she enjoys the simple things: time with her husband, Jack, their son, Brady, and rescued mutt, Roxy.
