Best Integration with Live Television

Social media platforms give audiences a new way to interact with live TV broadcasts in real time--whether it's citizens asking questions of a politician, viewers interacting with the host during a talk show, a news anchor reporting up-to-the-minute news from Twitter, or fans commenting on a live entertainment or sporting event. This award will recognize live television productions that have integrated Twitter, Facebook or other social platforms into the actual content or production of live television.
