John was quoted in TechCrunch in September of 2011.
My name is John Boitnott and I am a tech writer and social media consultant. I formerly worked as the Social Media Manager for Village Voice Media. I am one of the first social media strategists to be employed full time by an American media company in order to drive page views to its web sites. I currently work with several companies to polish their online content and bring people to their Web sites.
Before I started at VVM I held dozens of positions at various TV newsrooms in the state of California. I worked in TV news from 1994 to 2009. I was a web editor for two years at KNTV, the NBC station serving the San Francisco Bay Area. I also worked as a writer there for one year. I held freelance writing positions at KGO, KRON and KPIX in San Francisco as well. I worked as a radio anchor, assignment desk manager, reporter, editor and producer at KEYT in Santa Barbara for 10 years.
The Web is rapidly becoming one of the most popular ways for people to get their news. I am happy to be bringing news to the world community in a convenient and intelligent fashion.
From 1998 to 2003 I worked at KEYT Newsradio 1250 in Santa Barbara as a news anchor and reporter. Here are some shots from election coverage during that time.
