Robert Schork is Examiner Media’s Digital Editorial Director. Prior to his time with Examiner, Robert was the Editorial Director of Westchester Magazine, its sister publication, Hudson Valley Magazine, and their stable of ancillary publications, including Westchester Home, Westchester/Hudson Valley Weddings, and 914INC., an award-winning business lifestyle magazine Robert created and developed in 2010. In addition to regional news, business, and a variety of lifestyle topics, Robert has written and reported extensively about television for more than two decades. He is formerly the managing editor of Soap Opera Weekly, covering both daytime and prime-time drama and reality series, and was a contributor and consultant for ABC’s best-selling General Hospital: The Complete Scrapbook, a hardcover companion to its popular drama series.

Born and raised in suburban Philly, Robert left high school after his sophomore year to enter college two years early at Bard College at Simon’s Rock, the nation’s only four-year residential college founded exclusively for younger scholars. While there, he became a volunteer EMT, served as the editor for the college’s student newspaper, studied abroad for a semester in Istanbul, and completed his senior thesis on the macroeconomic ramifications of US healthcare reform – earning a B.A. in social sciences by age 20.
