PRAISE FOR DEATH OF AN ANCHORMAN

“I know Jim Cusick and Jim knows what he’s talking about. This may be a novel (and a good one) but what it says about TV journalism today is all too terribly true.”
—Linda Ellerbee, Author and TV Journalist

“An accomplished writer, James Cusick weaves a fictional tale into his real life experience as a reporter, producer and news director. The story flows into the behind the scenes truth where journalistic ethics and business skullduggery conflict. I wish some of it wasn’t true. It’s a good read!”
—Rolland Smith, Former WCBS-TV and CBS News Anchorman

“Jim Cusick is a newsman who knows how to tell a story. This is fiction laced with uncomfortable truths about what’s happened to the news business. He reminds us of the values lost in the scramble for eyeballs.”
—RD Sahl, Former Boston News Anchorman

“Jim Cusick knows television news, inside and out. In Death of an Anchorman, he tells a compelling story about the corruption of journalistic standards by the lure of celebrity, the tyranny of the bottom line, the rise of special interests and the impulse to pander rather than inform.”
—Sally Bedell Smith, Author of In All His Glory: The Life and Times of William S. Paley and The Birth of Modern Broadcasting

“In Death of an Anchorman Jim Cusick takes us on a roller-coaster ride of when “news” over the airwaves changed from Edward R. Murrow’s day into corporate speak, became more entertainment than a beacon of light and where those before the mike and camera fell to the temptations of drugs, flesh and celebrity. Cusick has the bona fides and watched from a ringside seat. He also knows how to tell a story with a lot of juicy facts thrown in. He is fearless, and somewhere up there Edward R. Murrow is smiling. After reading this book you will never watch or hear the “news” the same way again.”
—John Bowers, Author of The Colony

“The talented Jim Cusick takes you on a journey into the white-hot center of the TV news business—with all its vanity, nastiness, integrity, and passion. Great insights. Great wisdom, Great read.”
—James K. Glassman, Former host, CNN Capitol Gang Sunday Former Publisher, Atlantic Monthly and New Republic magazines

“Jim Cusick’s Orwellian novel is a spot-on indictment of the ‘business of news.’ Absorbing and frankly scary, Death of an Anchorman should be required reading for the suits at CNN.”
—Christopher Little, Photojournalist and Author
