Once again my pal Patrick Phillip at IWantMedia.com is asking you to vote for the top figure in media for 2009. Previous winners have been Arianna Huffington, writers on strike, Stephen Colbert, Anderson Cooper, Jon Stewart, Bonnie Fuller, and Martha Stewart. So who do you think was the leading personality in the media industry this past year? Who left a lasting imprint — for good or ill? You have 10 finalists from which to choose: AOL CEO Tim Armstrong, Oprah Winfrey, Jay Leno, Glenn Beck, Lou Dobbs, David Letterman, Rupert Murdoch, Si Newhouse, Redbox, and the Twitter guys. (I was a runner-up along with Brian Roberts and Diane Sawyer…) The voting is open until 12 midnight ET this Sunday, December 6th. Winner announced the following morning.
