2011 Donations in Honor of NLF Founder and Visionary Greg Niemi

Greg’s vision was instrumental in shaping the Nexstar Legacy Foundation and bringing it to where it is today! Greg has helped the foundation to accomplish many things since its inception:

  • He created a vision and a charter that establishedthe foundation in 2005.
  • Raised more than $85,000 in charter donations to
    start the foundation.
  • Created the successful raffles, events and auctions that helped bring a base of support to the foundation.
  • Given more than $100,000 to students in the trades.
  • And in 2011, helped to expand the foundation’s mission – details to come!

We wish Greg well as he starts on his new journey!


Greg Niemi: Why I Support The Foundation

I support the foundation because it is an investment in the future of our wonderful industry. The Nexstar Legacy Foundation has a great purpose — to attract and develop talent for our industry. Today, as best said by John Ward, we do this by giving the gift of education via scholarships. And in the future, there is so much more the foundation will be able to do, and desires to do, as the foundation’s purpose and resources expand.

Be -> Do -> Have -> Give. Giving perpetuates the future. Today we build a foundation that will leave a legacy far into our future.

Thank you to all who support the Nexstar Legacy Foundation.

Greg Niemi
