Bob McKenzie Has Over One Million Followers On Twitter

from Stu Cowan of the Montreal Gazette,

“It’s just a number,” the modest McKenzie added. “Obviously, the more followers the better in terms of promoting stuff for TSN or whatever. The more eyeballs you can get your message to in media the better. But I’m not sure I attach any tremendous amount of significance to it other than getting old and being around for a while.”

While Twitter is generally considered a tool for a younger generation, the 58-year-old McKenzie has embraced it and become a star in the Twittersphere as the most followed media personality in Canada. However, he has a long way to go to catch pop-star Justin Bieber, who leads all Canadians on Twitter with 63.4 million followers.

“I recognized pretty quickly that this is an invaluable tool, and not so much for disseminating information as acquiring information,” McKenzie said. “And what I realized is that this is a personalized news feed and that the more good people are on it the better.”

McKenzie has seen plenty of changes in the media business since getting his start covering junior hockey at the Sault Star in 1979 after graduating from Toronto’s Ryerson University. He then had a short stint at the Globe & Mail while also writing for The Hockey News. In 1982, at age 25, he was named editor in chief of The Hockey News, a position he held for nine years before becoming a hockey columnist at the Toronto Star, where he stayed for seven years before going back to The Hockey News in 1998. He joined TSN full time in 2000.

Morning Line- Don Cherry

“Someone asked me when I’m going to retire, and I said, ‘Retire from what?’”

“No, I’m having fun. As long as I’m having fun, that’s the name of the game. If I’m not having fun, then you’ll see it on Coach’s Corner. But I can hardly wait to get on Coach’s Corner. It hasn’t got blasé. I’m still jumpin’.”

The GIF Maker

from John Matisz at the Toronto Sun,

Of all the rooms in her house, the office is where Stephanie Vail feels most at home.

An iMac desktop computer, paired with a giant flatscreen monitor, is the room's centrepiece, the anchor of her New Hampshire work station.

Since April 15, when the puck dropped on the NHL playoffs, Vail has spent more than 30 hours staring at that giant monitor and two other smaller screens.

She mines the most shareable bits of TV broadcasts and converts them into GIF files -- short for Graphics Interchange Format but better explained as a video clip on loop -- which she posts to Twitter under the handle “@myregularface”.

A relative unknown this time last year, Vail has carved out a notable niche after taking up the hobby two Christmases ago. With an ever-growing audience of nearly 13,000 Twitter followers, she’s quickly become an indispensable member of the online hockey community.
