If you find media at all levels fascinating, you’ll enjoy Tales from the Newsrooms: An Offbeat Look, by Paul Burton. Displaying his trademark feistiness, Paul shares many newsroom stories from his years as an editor and reporter in the U.S. Northeast at the local, regional and international levels. He shares examples of bad writing he has encountered, employees of all kinds and how he has handled them, and some of the zaniest readers, sources and other people imaginable. Non-journalists will also appreciate Paul’s accounts of personnel moves. Paul shares memories of his interviews with major newsmakers, and his dealings with editors and writers. He recalls his less brilliant moments, too. After reading Tales from the Newsrooms: An Offbeat Look, you’ll see journalism in a completely different light.

Later, he was a highly successful copy chief for a financial media company. Paul has hosted radio and cable television talk shows and has been a featured speaker at conferences. In addition, he is a contributing author to the four-volume book Notable Sports Figures (Gale, 2004). Paul lives in the Staten Island borough of New York City.
