Tyler Hersko covers the business of the television industry for IndieWire in Los Angeles. He is an experienced journalist and music critic. He has also been endorsed for his proficiency in Microsoft Word by at least three colleagues on LinkedIn. He wrote this bio in the third-person because he saw a lot of other reporters do that for their own websites. He hopes this makes him appear Important and Good even though he thinks it is unbearably pretentious.

Anyway, my priors include business reporting for the Los Angeles Times and the Ventura County Star. I’m a diehard metalhead and also spent several years covering heavy metal music for Metal Injection. I have additional bylines in USA Today and VICE and was also the 2015 recipient of the Nevada Press Association “Best in Entertainment Writing” award.

Links to and commentary on all of my pop culture writing are available here. I also share reporting from my regular newsroom job and occasionally write on other subjects.
