Baltimore - From the News Director:
So with social media taking over our lives we are more informed throughout the day. Gone are the days of watching at 5 and 6pm to catch up on everything you missed throughout the day. For me, my Facebook and Twitter accounts, are filled with information from other news sources, from all over. Now, I'm a news junky, so maybe I'm not your average social network user but none-the-less, that's my social network world.
If that's what I'm doing, that's likely what you're doing (especially considering you're either reading this from abc2news.com, Facebook or Twitter) Honestly, I am on Facebook a lot more than Twitter.
Here's the question, more and more local TV stations are doing this: if you could choose the news what would you want to see in the first 10 minutes of a newscast that would make you watch news. It doesn't matter if it's the morning, mid-day, evening or 11pm, what do you want to see?
I know what I like in a newscast. I like the news of the day but I also like happy stuff. That sounds so 50's but I am not of the belief that the entire world is going to crap. People do good things everyday.
