Financial wizman (and journalist) Andrew Ross Sorkin recently shared with the Atlantic Wire how he consumes news and entertainment media. And as expected of the New York Times columnist and Squawk Box anchor, it’s quite a boatload.
Before we give you the whole list (it’s long), here’s what we found most interesting from the exchange:
- He reads Us Weekly at the gym
- He has two Twitter accounts, one is his very public @andrewrsorkin, the other is a private account that that he uses as a filter to get an “uncluttered view” of news, so he doesn’t follow as many people
- He reads Business Insider!
- He’s an avid reader of productivity blogs in his free time
- His favorite Twitter account is NPR Marketplace journalist Heidi Moore’s @moorehn
- He’s an Entourage fan
- Checking The Daily Show and Colbert Report is part of his morning routine
And here’s a breakdown of his media habits:
- Upon waking up: Check email and RSS feed

- Before Squawk Box: Flip between World Wide Exchange and Way Too Early
