Original TVNewser Bids Us Adieu

stelter_times_061207.jpgBrian Stelter, TVNewser’s obsessive wunderkind and recent collegiate grad, is heading to the New York Times. His 15,470th — and last — post, was filed earlier today:

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.

Brian, best of luck. We’ll be sure to cover — and criticize, if needed — your work at the Times. But you will certainly be missed.

NOTE: mediabistro.com will be introducing the new ‘Newser at a party next week in New York. Stay tuned.
