Suzanne Nadell, news director at WSB-TV in Atlanta, has signed a contract with Chalice Press to publish her upcoming book in 2024. In “Fact-Checking Your Jesus,” Nadell offers invaluable advice and wisdom to those seeking growth, framing her work in the objective eye of a journalist. She takes on justice, ethics, and gender issues; personal care and growth strategies, and how to be an ally, especially for women.
“Some of the most important life lessons never seem to be talked about in church. Speak up for the less fortunate. Recognize and dismantle bias. Look at the person rather than the gender or race. Support women. Learn to rest. Endless important truths seem to be neglected from the pulpit,” Nadell says. “Despite growing up in the church, I learned these lessons in newsrooms, becoming an industry leader who wants to share those life lessons while exploring why such basic truths are rarely taught in the one place we should expect to hear them.”
Nadell is an experienced media professional known for her exceptional leadership and profound impact on the industry. Widely recognized for her achievements, she was honored as one of Georgia's 100 most influential people in 2022. In addition to her dynamic career, Suzanne is a passionate advocate for empowering working women of faith. Through her speaking engagements and thought-provoking weekly blog, she shares invaluable insights, inspiring women to reach their full potential in their personal and professional worlds.
As news director of WSB-TV, the station not only dominated local ratings but also outshone all top ten market television stations nationwide. The station's outstanding performance led to numerous accolades, including multiple Southeast-Regional Emmy awards, including the prestigious News Excellence recognition in 2021 and 2022.
Beginning her career as a production assistant in Johnson City, Tennessee, Nadell led KOKI in Tulsa, Oklahoma to first place total key demographic viewership within a mere three years. She also served as news director at WPXI in Pittsburgh, where she led the station to ratings success. In both Tulsa and Pittsburgh, newsrooms collected a combined seven regional Edward R. Murrow Awards and 20 regional Emmy Awards. She also served at television stations in Tampa, Orlando, and Fort Myers, Florida.
Beyond her career, Suzanne finds fulfillment in her role as a devoted mother to her 12-year-old son, Price. Together with her husband, Michael, she actively contributes to the Atlanta Christian Church community. A two-time cancer survivor, you can find Suzanne enjoying time with her family at their home in Brookhaven, Georgia.
