Former Broward-Palm Beach New Times staffer Bob Norman's new blog is up and running at WPLG Local 10's website. Writes Norman:
This blog isn’t about me. It’s about you — and about this odd and awesome place where we live. Thanks to you the old blog truly became an intrinsic part of the town, like a little online revolution. It was a gathering place, sometimes a hearth, sometimes a madhouse, like a costume party where everyone is saying whatever the hell they want to say, no matter how brilliant or boorish. It’s a community, with solid regulars (I won’t start to list them because it will get too long), and I hope you’ll get to know them here too and join in when you feel the urge.At first glance, it appears that Channel 10 is sparing no expense as they roll-out their new franchise. Norman's blog sports a spiffy new logo with the catchy name, "Bob Norman's Blog."
Norman, a staff writer at BPB New Times for 13 years, moved to WPLG Channel 10 late last month.
Station honchos are hoping that loyal readers of his wildly popular Daily Pulp blog, will now become loyal viewers of Local 10 News. WPLG will, no doubt, also experience a spike in their web traffic.
Channel 10 has not announced when Norman will appear on the air.
Meanwhile, BPB New Times has renamed Norman's old blog, "The Pulp." Much of the content for the blog is being written by BPB New Times editor Eric Barton.
