A good example of a new Nashville business (and media executive) weblog

A good example of a new Nashville business (and media executive) weblog: The blogosphere-embracing general manager of the Nashville ABC-affiliate, WKRN-TV, Mike Seachrist, has started blogging himself.

Here are a few good things I believe suits (like me) can learn from Mike’s first few days of blogging:

1. He writes in his own voice — you know it’s him.

2. He talks honestly — explaining, for example, how the station has lucked out on ratings of the current “Bachelor,” because of some fortunate Nashville connections…(“a show that I thought was well past its prime,” he admits).

3. He comments on other blogs — like mine — during the weekend and at night, so I know he’s not delegating the conversation.

4. He links out – to other websites (like mine) boosting my blog-ego (blego).

5. Most encouraging: he doesn’t blog with numbers like I’m doing here.

    What a great lesson in getting away from top-down messaging. The GM of the ABC affiliate who admits on a company blog that he thinks NBC’s The West Wing is better than a show on his own network.
