Morning Media Menu With Jim Long (@NewMediaJim)

mornmm.gifToday on the Menu we welcome Jim Long, also known to his 25,000 Twitter followers as @NewMediaJim. Long is an Emmy award-winning photojournalist, editor, and producer with fifteen years of network television experience, who now works as an NBC News cameraman in the Washington bureau. He’s also part of tomorrow’s TVNewser Summit where will talk about the “New Tools of the Trade.” Also! He was apparently nervous about doing our show, but he did great!

We’re also joined briefly by Steve Garfield who calls in to chat. You can listen to the podcast at BlogTalkRadio.com/mediabistro and call in yourself(!) at 646-929-0321.
