Jarl Mohn's media habits
We asked Jarl Mohn, CEO of NPR, about his media habits: “what – and who – are you paying attention to?”
I’m crazy for films and this is the time of the year, having seen all the Academy nominees, when the pickings are super slim. I go deep on Metacritic and Rotten Tomatoes to find international and indie films or those I have missed.
What are you listening to these days?
Every morning I alternate listening to WAMU and a different NPR member station.
In DC I listen to WAMU’s bluegrass HD station, The Spectrum, HipHop Nation, The Heat and Willie’s Roadhouse on Sirius XM.
Who and/or what do you follow?
I don’t follow anyone online. I start my day when I wake by listening to the latest newscast on the NPR News App. Then I check out our digital analytics email to see how much traffic we had the day before and scan the top 20 stories for those I missed. I listen or read those then switch to an NPR member station.
That’s when I dive into the papers. NYT first followed by WSJ, WAPO or LA Times (depending on where I am). When I travel (every other week) I always pick up the local paper so I can keep a feel for what is happening, competitively in local markets.
Embarrassed to say my reading of books has deteriorated to the point of being almost non-existent.
