    I’d add Stephen Clark @sclarkwxyz of WXYZ Channel 7 in Detroit. He’s a big part of the twitter and facebook community, plus he has a regular Skype interview segment where he highlights what’s happening on new media to his traditional TV media audience.

    Charlie, you are most kind. I thank you very much for the info as we all try to figure out where social media is headed.

    Great post. Agree with so much you have shared here. Would add that LISTENING is critical to success. And I’d love to see what could happen if we could all get together for a brainstorming session. Thanks to our followers for helping us to make it work!!!

    Amy, you are so correct, “listening” is key. People want to have a voice but they don’t know where to go. Social media helps, if the media listens, really listens and puts folks on in real time, there is a wonderful chance that new media will be figured out quickly. You my friend are doing an amazing job. Congrats on your listing as the #1 loal news twitterer in the U.S.!

    I’m glad to see I’m not alone in the broadcast wing of the Twitterverse.

    My thanks to Charlie Wolberg (well known as @charliecurve here in Detroit) for the shoutout.

    I’d be interested in sharing ideas with the top Twitterers on how to make the most of these connections.

    Hi Ann. Really liked you wrote. I’ve been accused of many things but knowing much about “social media” is not one them. I tweeted yesterday about 7 or 8 others in local television news who I think deserve to be on this list before me. All I know is Twitter (and Facebook) works for me. Great source for info/leads. Another way to connect with viewers while on the air. It’s so much faster than the AP when it comes to breaking news. And it’s fun. Brain surgery, it’s not. I’m here to learn from you all…
