Media Stuff
One of the interesting things about Craig Ferguson is that, not only does he semi ad-lib his way through extremely funny monologues most nights, he also periodically injects his humor with life or history lessons. He did this one night when he started the Late Late Show by explaining, in a very succinct manner, why...
Facebook like status update
People who operate company Facebook fan pages are always looking for ways to grow their communities and increase interaction with followers on the site. It’s plainly obvious, just by looking at analytics, that fan pages have become hubs for building interest in news organizations. It takes an arsenal of methods for growing that interest. Perhaps...
The following post first appeared on the site Focus.com at this link. It’s a great site and I am going to be an ongoing contributor. In all the years I have been involved with news organizations, whether they be radio, TV or print, most of my bosses haven’t been very internet savvy. In recent years...
My whole life is about META. I worked at TV stations so long that at times I felt more interested in TV station culture and life than I was with the actual delivering of the information. The latest gossip about where a reporter or news director had just gotten a new job always enthralled me....
Boitnott resume tape
In the spirit of self-promotion that I sometimes engage in, let’s take a trip down memory lane with some of my on-air TV reporting work that I use to do for KEYT Channel 3 in Santa Barbara. For years I worked as a part-time reporter at the small-market TV station and ended up working on...
I have spoken recently about using pictures in your tweets to engage people and build followers. Including pics with your tweets keeps people up to date on your life, and actually adds value. It’s fine to say that – but why is it true? Over a long period of time, if people know they have...
I’m starting here what I would like to think would be an ongoing case study in how to build fans and followers on Twitter, through the use of pictures in one’s tweets. It’s good enough to tweet compelling articles and other content  from third-party sites through your tweetstream. It’s good to allow people to see...
There has been a lot of talk all over the internet about the wonderful development at SF Weekly, the San Francisco alternative weekly newspaper, where Alexia Tsotsis is arriving Monday after her sojourn at LA Weekly to become a web editor in the City by the Bay. I am super excited to get to work...
As I was reading about the life of Nixon speech writer William Safire yesterday, I came across this little piece written by Ted Pease with “Today’s Word” that I knew I had to show here. In my time as a journalist there are things I learned that I MUST pay attention to, like spelling and...
Conan O'Brien, Conan, Conan O'Brien and John Boitnott
A much taller, possibly slightly goofier, version of myself, Conan O’Brien, is doing very well in his new gig, I think many of us agree. However, there’s small hiccup in recent weeks, in the form of the media coverage surrounding the death of Michael Jackson. One of the recipients of the juicy ratings bonanza has...
