Steve Dyson, editor of the Birmingham Mail, who is leaving at the end of the year, names his best media of 2009.
Best old media: Aberdeen Press and Journal - ferocious, detailed, old-fashioned... yet a must-have for Aberdonians.
Best new media: BBC online.
Story of the Year: Death of Michael Jackson.
Journalist of the Year: The original deep-throat blogger and the Telegraph team responsible for breaking the MPs' expenses scandal.
Prediction for 2010: For journalism? That a slow but steady change in the ownership of regional newspapers begins to happen.
That regional journalism starts to proudly shout about its exclusive content, and that more and more experiments sprout up to trial charging for this online.
On Monday: Jo Wadsworth, web editor of The Argus, Brighton.
Best ofs, so far: Steve Busfield.
Saturday Seven Up
