"A classic of Washington journalism, a wry and probing memoir of a career that mattered when the news mattered." (Washington Post Book World)
"Brisk, brusque and surprisingly witty - a must for students of the peculiar marriage of politics and entertainment." (Kirkus)
"[I]t's unlikely anyone will surpass Roger Mudd's insightful, engrossing and candid account of what it was like when CBS dominated television news in the late 20th century." (The Hill)
I am an author and a librarian, and I happily now live in the realm of audio books.
Roger Mudd's The Place to Be...is a rare treat and an important contribution to the history of television journalism. Funny, profound, insightful and spoken with great finesse, this is a captivating story of Mudd's journey as well as the building of a television news network. It's also important in capturing the transition between radio and television journalism. Mudd's vivid writing style is an unbelievable treat.
If you are a newshound like me, you will enjoy this book. It talks about how the news was back in the early days.. and how it has changed to become what it is today. Great read by the man himself, Mr. Mudd.
