Doug Krikorian beat deadlines and made headlines for more than four decades as the Los Angeles region's most compelling sportswriter. His brash and combative style featured in the Los Angeles Herald Examiner," then in the "Long Beach Press-Telegram" and on radio with partner Joe McDonnell, profiled a wide range of athletes. Krikorian's penetrating coverage shaped fans' perceptions of Wilt Chamberlain, Tommy Lasorda, Muhammad Ali, Georgia Frontiere and many others. But his hard edge was softened through his marriage to a British physical therapist named Gillian, whose heroic battle with an incurable disease also broke his spirit. He picked up the pieces to do what he's always done best--tell the story. Now he recounts that harrowing love story--and more--from a life spent in sportswriting."
