Media Credentialing

Transparency and media access are critical to the functioning of the State of Nebraska's government. To that end, the Governor's Office regularly engages media in a variety of venues to ensure that timely and accurate information is provided to the public.

Due to operational limits and for security reasons, the Governor's Office credentials media. When credentialing media, the Governor's Office does so based on the neutral criteria outlined below. Media outlets are asked to submit the following application to receive a credential to attend press conferences that are open to "credentialed media" at the State Capitol and other locations. Traditional, online, and other organization may apply.

Questions about the credentialing progress may be submitted to Taylor Gage at taylor.gage@nebraska.gov

Please note that review of an application takes time, so the Governor's Office is not able to provide credentials the same day an application is received.

This application and credentialing system is for use by the Governor's Office exclusively.

The information provided in this application will help give a picture of the applicant and the applicant's outlet's work. No single factor is necessarily qualifying or disqualifying.
