FBDC Tweeterboard: Local TV Stations and Anchors

Last week we took a look at the social standing of the DC publications and Washington-based national anchors. Now it’s time to turn our attention to local television. FishbowlDC took a look at the Twitter followers of DC’s local TV stations as well as some of the top anchors in our market. Here’s what we found:

The takeaway: NBC 4 is by far the most socially engaged of the local stations -both in terms of the station’s brand and in terms of their anchors’. Almost all the local NBC anchors are highly active on Twitter, with weekend anchor Angie Goff and chief meteorologist* Doug Kammerer far outshining their colleagues and their competitors. CBS 9 weekend anchor Bruce Johnson also makes a strong showing. Together, the top 3 on the list have almost as many followers as the next 12 combined.

Hard to Resist: A Cocktail Soiree With Greek Meze…

A gathering on Monday evening is expected to attract a bunch of journalists and a hoard of lawmakers as Mike Manatos celebrates his 20 year anniversary as V.P. of the government relations firm, Manatos & Manatos. The cocktail reception with Greek meze is being held at Kellari Taverna on K Street in downtown Washington.

Journos are sure to be there. Manatos is, after all, married to Fox 5′s Laura Evans. She’ll attend with fellow Fox 5-ers (unless, of course, there’s breaking news). Those expected to attend include: Shawn Yancy (Laura’s co-host), Sue Palka; reporter Will Thomas; and Alison Starling from ABC 7.

Among the chattier guests will be MNSBC “Hardball” host Chris Matthews, who plans to attend with his wife, Kathleen. The Manatos family has been tight with the Matthews family for decades – they and their children have attended
the Manatos Christmas party for many years.

Beyond journalists, 15 members of Congress plan to put in some face time at the party as well as President of the Center for American Progress John Podesta and a variety of White House staffers – we’re hearing the First Lady’s deputy chief of staff and the V.P.’s Social Secretary.
