Fox Chicago Reporter Mark Saxenmeyer has won a ton of awards. He's the investigative reporter who brought us the expose on freakdancing, as well as countless other must-see "special reports" for the past decade. The Tribune reported last week that his contract will not be renewed at Fox Chicago. Boo.
But my favorite part about the Saxenmeyer experience was his tweets. I've been following him for years and he really uses Twitter to mine for stories. Every Tweet includes what he is working on and then a question on how you can help him. It's an artform of cheesy brilliance. It's almost like he was social media's investigative reporter. Almost. We'll miss you buddy.
Here are my top 10 favorite tweets from @Saxenmeyer:
