One of the things that amazes me the most about doing this is the fact that so many of you are supremely interested in the state of Bay Area media. Be it TV, radio, the Internet, naturally, many of you are active in the goings-on in the electronic communications world. And that's good because it is that that drove me to write this blog on a daily basis.
I have also learned that many of you have a list of very favorite people, people you like and people you clearly dislike. You have very specific processes and a vast model that guides your morning, your commute, your evening newscast and many of you follow this as a routine. I'm not breaking major ground explaining that but I've found a lot of you are more focused on this subject matter than I thought.
In that respect, the Bay Area, the nation's #4 media market, (#6 in TV), has developed a keen media awareness, from say, LA, or even NY where the following is just as intense, but people here are more passionate about their TV and radio performers. That's just my opinion, but I think it has significant merit.
Let's do a little poll here: Tell me your routine. Who do you like listening to, say, in the morning? Give me an idea of your viewing habits. Do you tend to watch cable more for news or is it the Internet and, Channel 5, for example, at 5 PM or The '10 O'clock News' on Channel 2? And which anchor do you like the most and why? Who do you hate too and why?
