Last week, I learned that St. Louis Public Radio's local news and talk show, St. Louis on the Air, would run an hour-long segment on the role of community newspapers in the digital age.
I'm (obviously) a big fan of newspapers and an even bigger fan (obviously) of local news. So I tuned in.
When host Don Marsh opened the lines for callers, "David from Brentwood" had some of the nicest things to say about what we're doing on Patch.
"It is, without a doubt, the best thing out there for keeping people informed," he said. "Six months ago, I didn't even know what Twitter was, and now I have it set up so whenever the gentleman who runs the Brentwood Maplewood one posts something, I get notification of that."
First, thank you for calling me a gentleman (I've certainly been called worse!). Second, thank you for the extremely kind words, David. That made my day.
If you didn't get a chance to listen to the show, the entire conversation is available on St. Louis Public Radio's website.
And if you haven't followed us on Twitter yet, then join David and check us out at www.twitter.com/MBPatch.
