Overview
"And what did the boss say?" Regina demanded. Austin locked eyes with her. "He said our stories need more vagina." Regina recoiled as if Austin had poked her with a sharp stick. "He said what?" Austin held his hand up. "As God is my judge. That was the word he used." What kind of crazy newsroom is this? It's the kind three friends find as each embarks on a broadcast journalism career at the height of the Golden Age of TV News. In their quest for Truth, Justice, and Ratings, they'll risk it all, battling profit-minded owners, idiotic managers, shady businessmen, out-of-control public officials, and dangerous criminals. Before it's over, one will be in a fight for his job, another will be fighting for his sanity, and the third will be struggling for his very life. Written by Forrest Carr, an award-winning journalist who spent 33 years in the trenches of local news warfare, Messages tells a compelling reality-inspired crime story while also providing rare and authentic insight into the powerful world of local TV news and the driven, sometimes tortured people who decide what you'll be allowed to know about the community where you live. An "accomplished debut novel" written with "smooth skill" and filled will "considerable comic energy and fast-paced dialogue. A spirited, lavishly detailed behind-the-scenes look at the inner workings of a newsroom." -- Kirkus Reviews "A masterful expos of TV news. Carr's novel is engrossing, fun to read and a joy to see play out to its inevitable, tragic, hilarious and scandalous conclusion. Take this book home. You won't be disappointed." -- Tim Schwartz, MoCoVox.com What readers are posting about Messages: - "Great read Many laugh out loud moments." - "Fast paced and funny." - "Better than Anchorman." - "Loved it Hard to put down." - "Like reading M*A*S*H set in a newsroom."
