Eight-month old news start-up Al Jazeera America took home the Shorty Award honor for best news twitter account at last night’s Shorty Awards in New York City. Adding to the hardware, their deputy news editor, Sarah Jones, won the best social media journalist award (@SarahJReports). Read here for the full awards recap.

And today, in the latest installment of MediabistroTV’s “What’s Your Show?” series, we take you behind the scenes at AJAM’s primetime newscast with TV news veteran John Seigenthaler.

The mission is quite “radical,” Seigenthaler tells TVNewser: to provide unbiased, in-depth journalism for AJAM’s audience.
