Carrie Sheffield, Founder and CEO of Bold, joins host Deirdre Breakenridge on Women Worldwide. Carrie is a writer, political analyst and now the founder of Bold, a Millennial-focused, news and cultural platform centered on ideals of personal responsibility and accessible capitalism. Carrie has deep roots in journalism. She is a Forbes contributor and senior writer for Opportunity Lives. She has hosted an online TV show for The Washington Times and appears on MSNBC, Fox News, CNN, CBS digital, and Fox Business Network.
On the show, Carrie discusses the changing media landscape, from the way people are gathering their news and information through new channels to how different types of media are covering the presidential election. Social media has disrupted how people obtain news and has fractured the conversation, siloing people into niches. She shares her insights on Millennials and their social media habits, news consumption and the presidential candidates they prefer. Carrie also offers tips to listeners on launching a start-up, from raising money to managing the 24 /7 news cycle.
Carrie began her journalism career in Washington with Robert Novak, later covering Congress for The Hill newspaper. As a founding reporter at POLITICO, she wrote editorials for The Washington Times under Tony Blankley. Carrie also spent several years in financial services, at Goldman Sachs, where she managed credit risk on a portfolio with potential exposure of $1.97 billion.
