What Terry Gross Reads

In the latest installment of The Atlantic Wire's Media Diet series, in which well-informed journalists and media personalities discuss how they consume the news, Fresh Air host Terry Gross tells John Hudson that she tends to stay away from the computer, and prefers to hear about what's online from Keith Olbermann and Rachel Maddow.

Gross's show spans news and entertainment, and her media diet includes more culture, for work purposes, than most political news figures: she watches HBO--Big Love, The Wire, and Bill Maher--plus The Office, The Daily Show, and The Colbert Report.

The radio host downloads magazines to her Kindle to stay busy on flights to and from California. And she does not enjoy the frenetic pace of Twitter, and in fact considers it an overload of input.
