Nice article from Poynter about KAIT's social media efforts

Our social media efforts at KAIT were recently recognized in an article from Poynter.  While my  name was mentioned in the story, I had very little to do with our great social media presence.  The entire Region 8 News staff took the bull by the horns as they say and ran with it.  My only part is clearing the hurdles in front of them as they improve our product.  Anyways, it's nice for us to be noticed!
