Charlie Gibson Gets on the Blogwagon

WorldNewser_8.25.bmpThere’s the Daily Nightly, Couric & Company and now Charlie Gibson is getting into the blog game with the revamped WorldNewser. It’s part of a redesign for the World News page on ABCNews.com.

Right now, WorldNewser includes posts from George Stephanopoulos on what Michelle Obama “needs to do tonight” in her keynote speech. There are also posts on the morning meeting and the news that Ted Kennedy will attend tonight’s proceedings which will include a tribute to him.

Other features of the redesign: web-exclusive content, political resources, and the continuing “World News” Webcast.

WorldNewser…that has a familiar ring to it.

> Update: Without further adieu, we give you Charlie Gibson’s first blog post: “And so it begins. The conventions…and my participation in this blog.” Can’t wait for the first time Gibson has to write “NSFW”
