A few years ago the television news industry was hooked on TVNewser, a blog devoted to industry gossip, articles and anonymous tips. But the voice behind the blog, originally called CableNewser, didn't come from a seasoned professional. Instead, 18-year-old college student Brian Stelter manned the almost 24/7 online coverage. "The whole industry pays attention to his blog," Jeffrey W. Schneider, a senior vice president of ABC News told The New York Times. "It would not surprise me if I refreshed my browser 30 to 40 times a day." After three and a half years of blogging, Stelter now covers television and digital media for The New York Times.
