ABC finds social media editor

ABC News has been on the lookout for a new social media editor, and now they've found one: Micah Grimes. Most recently an assignment editor at ABC Action News (WFTS-TV) in Tampa, Fla., Grimes has also previously served as web and social editor for Bay News 9.

"I can now share the news: I will be the new Social Media Editor at @ABC News in NYC," Grimes tweeted. "I start Monday. Simply humbled. My dream job."

"Really going to miss @MicahGrimes, but now he'll be sharing his breaking news coverage with everyone," Deadspin's Tim Burke tweeted, concluding, "Our loss, your gain."

"At Troy I was tasked w/coaching @MicahGrimes in writing for broadcast," shared Jeff Shearer at WSFA 12 News. "Instead, he taught me how to write fast. He's ideal for social media."
