Andrew Ross Sorkin is an award-winning journalist for The New York Times and a co-anchor of Squawk Box, CNBC’s signature morning program. He is also the founder and editor-at-large of DealBook, an online daily financial report published by The Times that he started in 2001.

Sorkin is the author of Too Big to Fail: How Wall Street and Washington Fought to Save the Financial System — and Themselves, which chronicled the events of the 2008 financial crisis. The book won the 2010 Gerald Loeb Award for Best Business Book, and was shortlisted for the 2010 Samuel Johnson Prize and the 2010 Financial Times Business Book of the Year Award. The book spent more than six months on the New York Times Best Seller list in hardcover and paperback. The book was adapted as a movie for HBO Films in 2011. Sorkin was a co-producer of the film, which was nominated for 11 Emmy Awards.

Sorkin is also co-creator of the drama series Billions on Showtime starring Paul Giamatti and Damien Lewis. He has several new film and television projects in development.

Sorkin is one the preeminent interviewers in the nation, known for his incisive, nuanced long-form conversations with the biggest newsmakers in the world, from Elon Musk to Lebron James to Kim Kardashian and Hillary Clinton. In 2022, he won the Emmy award for "Outstanding Live Interview" for his DealBook Summit 2021 conversation with Adam Neumann, the WeWork co-founder’s first public interview after the company’s collapse.

In the fall of 2022, Sorkin debuted Special Edition with Andrew Ross Sorkin, a limited streaming interview series for NBC broadcast on NBC News Now and available on demand on Peacock, YouTube,, as well as platforms like Pluto TV, Samsung TV Plus, The Roku Channel and NBC News’ apps on Roku, Fire TV and Apple TV.

Over the years, Sorkin has broken news of many major mergers and acquisitions in the pages of The Times and has been at the forefront of Wall Street news. He reported extensively on the financial crisis of 2008, its aftermath on Wall Street and the government bailout of major investment banks, with coverage including the collapse of Bear Stearns and Lehman Brothers, and the A.I.G. bailout. He has broken news of deals including Chase’s acquisition of J.P. Morgan and Hewlett-Packard’s acquisition of Compaq. He also led The Times’s coverage of Vodafone’s $183 billion hostile bid for Mannesmann, resulting in the world’s largest takeover ever.

As a leading voice about Wall Street and corporate America, Sorkin is a frequent guest on national television and radio programs, as well as a lecturer at universities across the country. He has appeared on NBC’s The Today Show, PBS’s NewsHour, HBO's Real Time with Bill Maher, NPR’s Talk of the Nation, and many others.

He won a Gerald Loeb Award in 2004 for breaking the news of I.B.M.’s historic sale of its PC business to Lenovo. He was also a finalist in the commentary category for his DealBook column, and won a Society of American Business Editors and Writers Award for breaking news in 2005 and again in 2006. In 2007, the World Economic Forum named him a Young Global Leader. He is co-chair of The New York Public Library’s Business Leadership Council and a member of the Council on Foreign Relations.

Sorkin began writing for The New York Times in 1995 under unusual circumstances: he hadn’t yet graduated from high school. He is a graduate of Cornell University.

The Secret to Success in Business and Life
Andrew will be the first to tell you that the story of his success is not one of prodigious talent but rather one of dogged persistence. He landed his job at The New York Times before graduating high school by, in a world before email and social media, calling and writing letters to his favorite journalist daily until he was offered a simple tour of the NYT offices. With a foot in the door, his persistence and ability to recognize opportunities to make an impact took him to the position he’s in today.
Persistence is consistently the most overlooked quality in successful people, often supplanted by talent and passion — skills that are certainly beneficial, but will only take you so far. In this talk, Andrew makes the case that life rewards those who don’t take no for an answer, who take their destiny into their own hands and create the spaces they wish to occupy.
