Publisher Description

For the most up-to-date, accurate and late-breaking news in your community its the beautiful, handsome, polished and oh-so-confident news anchors and reporters seen on local television news we usually turn to. They are trusted. Professional. Accountable. They are the kind of men and women you want to invite to dinner. Or are they? Breaking News The Series takes fans on an unbelievable, comedic and sometimes tragic behind-the-scenes tour of a South Florida television station shining a bright light on a world only those inside newsrooms ever see.

Breaking News The Series (Season 1: Episode 1) welcomes readers to the fast-paced and glitzy South Florida newsroom of WKMI, as young and eager-to-succeed new reporter Karen Anderson begins her career stepping into what can only be described as a hot-bed of professional dysfunction! As Karen joins the team of reporters and anchors, she quickly gets a rude awakening that if she's going to survive and thrive in the roller-coaster world of local television news, she has to make strategic alliances (fast), keep her guard up against back-stabbing colleagues like the ‘twin devil,’ avoid the pitfalls of a building filled with almost unimaginable sexual and erotic escapades and all the while maintain her pretty, polished and calm on-the-air exterior she'll need if she's going to "make it." And that's just on day one!

How will Karen Anderson cope with a violent crime scene playing out on the grounds of her new office space? Will she be able to navigate the prickly personalities of her on-air colleagues and psychotic newsroom managers? Will her journalistic career boil down to expose’s such as the vagina monologue? Is the world of local television news all it's cracked up to be or will Karen see through the thin veneer of glitz and glam right to the dark, sticky and downright mean underbelly of the industry and profession she so desperately wants to succeed in?

In Breaking News The Series, seasoned journalists and co-authors, R.E. Schicchi and D. K. Johnson bring to life an unbelievably wacky cast of characters inspired by dozens of actual reporters, anchors, producers, writers, editors and managers the women have called colleagues during their news careers. Serving as editors in several major newsrooms across the country, the women often found themselves "flies on the wall" to some of the most insane, outrageous, humiliating, vicious downright cruel and yes, laughable moments taking place in their newsrooms.
