MediaMoGirl debuted this weekend with its first news report. The site combines news and comedy with the motto that “first we make you laugh, then we make you think.” Read more in the “about” section of MediaMoGirl. So each of the approximately 5-minute videocasts includes some short bits followed by a story on something important. Creator Angela Calman — who has worked in mainstream media for much of her career — cast me as the weather guy when we met via Metacafe’s PR team last month. I took the role seriously and got coaching from a real weather guy (see video). Rest assured Angela won’t let me near any of the programming that “makes you think.”
