SXSWSouth by Southwest Interactive starts today (the music portion starts Monday) and various tvnewsers will be there.

MSNBC’s Alex Wagner will be a on a panel today. “Way Too Early” host Thomas Robertsand MSNBC.com executive editor Richard Wolffe sit on a panel Tuesday. (A TVNewser tipster spotted Wolfe on an Austin-bound JetBlue flight this morning enjoying his Dunkin’ Donuts coffee.) JJ Ramberg, host of Your Business, will be on a panel of business reporters and editors on Tuesday as well.

CNN will have correspondent Laurie Segall and editorial folks on the ground at the conference, but no public-facing presence this year. During 2012’s SXSW, an Austin restaurant became “CNN Grill.”

Bloomberg TV’s Emily Chang is moderating a fireside chat with AOL co-founder Steve Case on Saturday.

Fox News will also be sending a correspondent to the conference. HLN, which recently rebranded itself as the “TV home of social media,” won’t have a presence at SXSW this year. ABC News won’t be sending a correspondent this year.

Kara Swisher of Re/code, which is backed by the NBCU News Group, will be on a technology journalism panel on Monday.

Mediabistro’s Angela Washeck will also be at the conference. Look for her reports on our sister sites SocialTimes and 10,000 Words and on Twitter.
