Morgan Webb, who has been in the world of Tech-related TV for years, has just launched her own video news blog, called Webb Alert, and she’s got the makings of a star.
Like Rocketboom, Webb Alert is is a daily broadcast for the geeks of the world. Unlike Rocketboom, Webb Alert is coherent. It’s also sharper than WallStrip, the other news site hosted by an engaging woman. Wallstrip launched in October and was sold within months to CBS for a few million.
If those can do it, Webb Alert can, too.
This morning, Webb covers Rupert Murdoch’s purchase of the Wall Street Journal, Google’s dealings with the FCC, Disney’s $700 million acquisition of Club Penguin, the crackdown on people who make illegal chips for video game consoles, and more. She never slows down, her delivery is clear , intelligent and unpretentious, and she doesn’t waste any words. Oh, and she’s beautiful, too. Would we have mentioned her appearance if she were a handsome guy? We’ll never know.
Rob Reid, Webb’s husband runs the business side. He told us it’s going to be about 70 percent tech news, and 30 percent tech society & lifestyle pieces. On the news side, he said they’re likely to cover things like Google bidding on the 700Mhz spectrum or a fund-raising by Joost.
