>Videogenic. Telegenic.

I ran across the term telegenic in a bio on Heath Ledger. Sounds enough like photogenic for me to surmise what it means, but I like to be accurate, so I looked it up. Merriam-Webster’s definition:

well-suited to the medium of television; especially : having an appearance and manner that are markedly attractive to television viewers

It’s not a common term, but apparently the word ‘telegenic’ has been around since the late 1940′s. Who knew?

Are you telegenic?
(I’m having visions of all the people who say yes having had their 15 seconds of fame on a newscast after a bad bout of weather.)
