Poll- @TheSteveDuJour Has Set The Over/Under On Days Til The First Story About A Person Getting Lost In A Corn Maze Makes Headlines At 7 Days

Just as sure as there’s a New Year’s Eve, A Memorial Day and Labor Day, every year we get treated to the annual story about a person or group of persons who get lost in a corn maze and police or fire departments have to be called in to save these people.

I asked my boy Steve Saleeba at WBZ where he would peg the over/under for days until this annual story gets filed and he replied-

 

If you don’t follow Steve on Twitter you really ought to, he’s one of my most worthy follows. @TheSteveDuJour

So how bout you? You taking the over or under 7 days til we get the first Northeast report about someone getting lost in a corn maze and some type of professional help being brought in to rescue them?

Deadline 8:24AM Friday September 27th

5 Questions With @Joey_C’s Favorite Twitter Peeps- Steve Saleeba

Starting out with Steve Saleeba- @TheSteveDuJour .  Steve is one of my favorite people on twitter for a couple of reasons.  He has a sarcastic edge but also tweets interesting breaking news tidbits.  IMO there’s nothing worse than when someone gets on twitter and then just hammers the shit out of their feed with advertisements for their company.  The best twitter users highlight the best of what they come across on the web and breaking news and have a sense of humor when they do it.  There’s not many more interesting than Steve.

Five Questions-

What are your duties at WBZ?

I’m a web content producer for CBSBoston.com . I write news and features, I manage the site’s “Boston’s Best” section, I share responsibility for the site’s social media accounts, and I provide constant entertainment for my co-workers… whether they like it or not.

Why do you think you are follow worthy on Twitter?

Isn’t there supposed to be a hyphen in follow-worthy? What was the question again?

What types of tweets or twitter user drive you up a wall?

Any kind of politically partisan propaganda… It’s bad enough that I have to listen to Congress acting like a bunch of exaggerating children… Now I have to see a bunch of mindless lemmings regurgitate this crap to me on my Twitter feed? No thanks.  People need to find common ground. I love politics. I tweet about politics sometimes. But I try to keep it non-partisan. In other words – I blame them all.

Who are some of your favorite twitter users?

Pretty sure I’ll get in trouble if I don’t say @joey_c & @JMcElhenny.  So, them. (It’s like getting to play at Fenway Park and saying you aren’t a fan of the managers.) Aside from those guys, I follow beer fans, hockey (and other sports) fans, co-workers, newsies, music buffs, cycling advocates, comedians, employees at competing news outlets, PR people, you name it.   And to be honest, they’re all great… Tough to pick just a few.

Do you have a website you would like to promote?

Yes. 3, actually.

www.CBSBoston.com . I work there. I’d like to keep working there. Site visits = $.

If you want to read my blog, which I rarely update, it’s: http://stevesaleeba.wordpress.com/

www.goodmorninggloucester.com  Apparently they’re going to be running a new ‘Five Questions’ series on that site. I’m sure it’ll be awesome. It’s definitely worth checking out.
