Best Local Twitter Feed (TV) 

Christine Maddela, WKRN

While she has won her share of awards for her in-depth, multi-part series on subjects such as the Tennessee Minuteman, what the weekend anchor and reporter is best known for online is her use of Twitter. Sure, everyone has a Twitter account these days—but have they ever broken one of the city's biggest stories with it? Maddela has. While every news organization in town was scrambling get news of Steve McNair's death to their various platforms, Maddela was widely credited with being first—on Twitter. It's not all about serious journalism, though. Maddela tweets about her dogs, her trainer, she even tweets during the newscast—just because she can. We've never seen the camera catch her midtweet. But we keep watching—and waiting. A.C. KLEINHEIDER
