Live From Aspen

The Aspen Ideas Festival, presented by the Aspen Institute and The Atlantic, begins today.

The following news men and women will broadcast live from Aspen. Some were mentioned in Politico Playbook this morning by Mike Allen, who is attending and writing Playbook from the road. As we also know from this morning’s antics, Slate‘s Dave Weigel is also attending and has hopefully arrived safe and sound without his plane suffering any engine trouble. There is no doubt in our minds that he’ll be tweeting his fingers off this week in Aspen.

MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports”; CNBC’s “Closing Bell with Maria Bartiromo”; APM’s “Marketplace” LIVE with Kai Ryssdal; NPR’s “Talk of the Nation”; Thomson Reuters’ “Aspen Ideas with Chrystia Freeland”; Aspen Public Radio airing live and taped sessions.

Sam Youngman: The FishbowlDC Interview

916491190_6beb1ee0d5.jpgSay hello to The Hill’s Sam Youngman.

What word do you routinely misspell? I have a real problem with dessert/desert. Fortunately, I rarely use either.

What’s the name of your cell phone ring? I leave it on vibrate, but the ring is Snoop’s “Gin and Juice.”

What time did you get up this morning? About 7:30

When did you last cry and why? Whenever the last time was that I watched “Brian’s Song.”

How many emails do you receive a day, roughly? 150 or so

What’s your favorite letter? Either S or Y.

What single person played the biggest role / had the biggest influence on your journalism career? Michael Lindenberger at the Dallas Morning News was very helpful when I was getting started. And fellow Kentucky native Hunter Thompson was an early inspiration.

When’s the last time you volunteered? Where? I’m not a good person. Probably in college.
