theSkimm Co-Founders On Success And The Changing News WorldPlay
Five thousand leaders in business, entertainment, technology and industry — all of them under 30-years-old — are in Boston this week for the Forbes Under 30 Summit.
Among them are Danielle Weisberg and Carly Zakin. They co-founded theSkimm, the company that sends out The Daily Skimm email newsletter featuring short, pithy summaries of the day's news. The writing is casual — meant to sound like the news is being delivered by a friend.
Four years after its launch, theSkimm has over 4 million subscribers.
Zakin and Weisberg join Here & Now's Robin Young in a View From The Top conversation about the changing news environment and their company's success.
