FBDC Tweeterboard: National On-Air Talent

It’s that time of the month again to check out the social standing of DC’s stable of national correspondents and anchors. FishbowlDC tallied the Twitter followers of the top 20 on-air journalists including broadcast, cable, and radio. Here’s what we found:

1.) George Stephanopoulos* ABC 1,936,395
2.) David Gregory NBC 1,651,521
3.) Newt Gingrich* CNN 1,493,576
4.) Scott Simon NPR 1,251,445
5.) John Donvan ABC 1,232,606
6.) Wolf Blitzer CNN 697,050
7.) Bret Baier FOX 453,195
8.) Chuck Todd MSNBC 415,265
9.) Greta VanSusteren FOX 406,677
10.) Jake Tapper CNN 324,883

Catch 11 – 20 after the jump…

11.) S.E. Cupp* CNN 263,696
12.) Brit Hume FOX 241,528
13.) Chris Matthews MSNBC 239,182
14.) Brian Stelter* CNN 220,546

19.) Mark Knoller CBS 148,878
20.) Howard Kurtz FOX 129,429

*Brian and George both spend most of their time in New York, but host DC-based shows. Newt and S.E. are obviously pundits as opposed to journalists, but since they host CNN’s “Crossfire,” they’re included in the list.
