Morning Media Menu With Squawk Box‘s Becky Quick

mornmm.gifToday on the Menu CNBC’s Becky Quick joins us straight off the set of Squawk Box, which she co-hosts every morning.

Quick talks about how she and her colleagues try to balance their coverage of the crisis so it can be understood by a larger audience: “We try not to dumb it down…to still appeal to that core customer who’s been with us for years and years, but we do catch ourselves from time to time maybe explaining these terms a little more slowly.”

Quick also talks about Facebook’s privacy concerns — she recently closed down her own account — and why we should be paying for content. You can listen to the podcast live every morning at 9amET on BlogTalkRadio.com/mediabistro and call in at 646-929-0321. You can also subscribe to the iTunes feed of the podcast by clicking the “iTunes” button.
