Please allow me to introduce myselfPublished 4:30pm Monday, June 9, 2014

Madison – it’s great to finally be here. You may or may not have already seen me around town, but I am Nick Sellers and I am your humble new reporter for The Madison Record and Madison County Record.
I come here by way of the University of Alabama, from which I graduated in May 2014 with a degree in journalism. I am a Birmingham native, so it’s safe to say Alabama is and always will be home to me.
I am, however, fairly green to the Madison-Huntsville area. Apart from a fifth-grade field trip to the Space & Rocket Center in Huntsville, northern Alabama is not a place I have spent much time prior to my post-graduate life.
With that being said, I am diving headfirst into a new community with new people and new stories to tell. Well, new to me, at least. I pledge to do everything in my power to get to know all the places and people that make Madison such a special place.
From what I can glean in my short time here, Madison is in a bit of a transition phase. That much is obvious from the fact that two of the four roads I travel to get back to my apartment everyday are undergoing some soft of construction.
With that sort of growth, however, comes a slew of opportunities and exciting times, and I’m no less than thrilled to be a part of that phase with the city.
Please feel free to contact me anytime with anything you have to share. I firmly believe that, in a community as diverse and organic as Madison, everyone has a story to tell and everyone matters.
That is the essence of community journalism, and I intend on carrying that mantle the best I know how.
