THE NEWS SORORITY Diane Sawyer, Katie Couric, Christiane Amanpour and the (Ongoing, Imperfect, Complicated) Triumph of Women in TV News

by | Read by Morgan Hallett

Contemporary Culture • 17.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2014

In clear, authoritative tones reminiscent of those that might emanate from a news anchor, narrator Morgan Hallett takes listeners through this account of Sawyer’s, Couric’s, and Amanpour’s struggles to gain just such a seat. Hallett remains fittingly unsentimental yet emotive while narrating the formative moments in the personal lives and careers of these iconic women. Their distinct personalities and career approaches emerge, as do differences in their public and private personas. Weller dishes out enough intrigue, backstabbing, and bad blood for listeners who are looking for them, but she also provides plenty of history, news industry revelations, and insights on women in leadership. Hallett’s professional tone reinforces the substantive nature of the book and the women it features. K.W. © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2014]
