Morning Media Menu Welcomes Back Dan Abrams

mornmm.gifToday on the Menu we continue to celebrate our four month anniversary week by welcoming back Dan Abrams.Dan-Abrams.jpg Abrams appeared on the podcast in our early days to tell us about his newly launched media consulting business Abrams Research and returns this week to talk about how things have progressed since then, as well as his plans to launch a media blog.

A program note: mediabistro.com editor Rebecca Fox is filling in for me (again! she’s a star) whilst I am attending the MESH conference in Toronto today.

Over the course of the lively(!) discussion Abrams talks about the importance of social media, his take on the coverage Abrams Research has received thus far, the AP’s recent decision to charge for their content, and(!) how much Steve’s hosting talents have improved since January (and, to be clear, he was good to begin with!) You can listen to all the past podcasts at BlogTalkRadio.com/mediabistro and call in at 646-929-0321.
