The News Sorority
Diane Sawyer, Katie Couric, Christiane Amanpour-- and the (ongoing, Imperfect, Complicated) Triumph of Women in TV NewsBook - 2014
For decades, women battered the walls of the male fortress of television journalism, until finally three -- Diane Sawyer, Katie Couric, and Christiane Amanpour - broke through, definitively remaking America's nightly news. Drawing on exclusive interviews with their colleagues and intimates from childhood on, bestselling author Sheila Weller crafts a lively and eye-opening narrative, revealing the combination of ambition, skill, and character that enabled these three singular women to infiltrate the once impenetrable "boys club" and become cultural icons.
