This was going to be quietly shuffled off to my delicious links but I thought it worth a few extra words.
The North West has a Top 100 people in the Media in the North West list. It comes out of a site that was new to me called How-do (sub-headed: News, opinion and resources for the North West media industry). In terms of keeping up with who’s who and what’s happening in the media in that part of the country How-do is actually a very useful site. Makes the place seem vibrant and busy and connected (which of course is probably how it is).
So I’m really just wondering what we’d get out of a Top 100 people in the Media in the West Midlands list. The media has seven entrants in the Birmingham Post’s Power 50 but maybe it’s time we deemed it mature enough to get a list of its own.
Oh and before we begin; this is the meedja I’m talking about: TV, radio, the press and publishing, film and production, new media, PR and advertising. NOT the arts. They can sod off and do their own top 100. Any suggestions? Bob Warman at number 47 anyone? And no jokes about there not being a 100 to choose from.
