Nathan Sikes - Public Relations Associate

With more than ten years in the broadcast industry, Birmingham native Nathan Sikes brings a host of exciting ideas to the clients of Hodges & Associates.  Having worked with a wide variety of people -- from movie stars to writers to politicians -- to help them get their message on television, Nathan has mastered the fine art of communication and negotiation.  He believes anything can be accomplished if well-planned and properly visualized, and he believes that strong relationships are the cornerstone of a solid public relations strategy.

Nathan’s penchant for thinking “visually” comes not only from his work in broadcast, but through his studies at Pepperdine University, in Malibu, California, where he received his BA in mass communication with an emphasis on broadcasting and film production. He served his internship with Lobell/Bergman Productions, where he assisted in the pre-production of major Hollywood movies.  After graduating he returned to Birmingham to work for both its NBC and FOX affiliates, where he helped produce several top-rated news shows.

Nathan occasionally narrates locally-produced documentaries and is also a member of the “Flying McDavid Brothers” film production team, which took top prize in the 2005 July Sidewalk Scramble competition.
