Publisher's Summary

Jackie McGee is a young woman destined to become a local TV news star. Told in retrospect, Jackie takes the listener on the bumpy ride from her beginnings as a small-town TV reporter to her final revelations about big-time local TV news.

Fast-paced, insightful, poignant, and often hilarious, Donna McNeely's Stuck in the Box captures the insanity, the characters, and the superficiality that permeate every local TV news station in America. This heroine tells the truth about local TV news, in a way that only a true insider can.

What the Critics Say

"A fun, poignant, and terribly true romp through the world of local TV news. The names were changed, but trust me. These are the characters who deliver your local news!" (Walt Buteau, WPRI-TV, Providence)
"The perfect insider's take on local TV news. Stuck in the Box humorously captures the adrenaline that makes working in local news so addictive and so exhausting. So realistic it gave me news-mares!" (Angie Austin, KWGN-TV, Denver)
"The most realistic behind-the-scenes look at local news I've ever read...and wickedly funny as told through Donna McNeely's charming prose and rapier wit. A 'must-read' for anyone who's ever worked in local TV news, and a 'should-read' for anyone who's ever watched it!" (Cameron Kent, WXII-TV, Winston-Salem)
