15,470 Posts Later… Here’s My Goodbye

By Brian Comment

Today I’m publishing my last post on TVNewser, 15,470 entries and 1,297 days after launching CableNewser.

It started as an anonymous project by a news consumer, but before long, the site was being read by the same people I was writing about. Shortly after The New York Times revealed my 18-year-old identity, mediabistro.com turned me into TVNewser — providing generous support and enabling the blog to attract more than a million page views per month.

On Monday I move to The New York Times as a media reporter. I can always be reached at bstelter@gmail.com or 240-793-2483.

There’s a new TVNewser in town — someone who, I’m happy to say, has already beaten me on some stories! We’ll save that announcement for next week. Until then, the tip box and tvnewser@mediabistro.com work.

Thanks to my mediabistro.com colleagues for never-ending support; to each network rep who has handled my numerous requests, and to every tipster, insider and observer who helped shape the blog.

In a very real way, TVNewser has been a priceless education in television and journalism — TV 101 (and PR 101, for that matter). I still have a lot to learn.
