Shel Israel, blogger, consultant and co-author of Naked Conversations with Robert Scoble, will join, the company announced today.

Shel’s daily show launches on March 3.  Here’s a description of the show in a statement from Mansueto Ventures, publishers of Fast Company:

Primarily a daily interview show, Israel’s
program, GlobalNeighbourhoods TV (GNTV)
, will focus on
social media’s impact on business and culture. While the majority
his programs will deal with businesses
the social media issues
that impact

them, he will also cover social media’s impact on other institutions such as
government, education and media.

I interviewed Shel in Palo Alto in 2006.  He talks about his background and how he came to work with Scoble on the book.  Shel writes about his new gig on his blog today.
