About this product
- DescriptionWhen most people think of TV news, it's of network stars commanding millions of dollars and watched by millions of people. But more people watch their local stations than the network news, and most journalists work in local news. So what is it actually like? Is it glamorous, fun, lucrative? Or t so much? Even Worse Than We Had Hoped provides the answers. Part memoir, part examination of the TV business, this book pulls back the curtain on local news while recounting a funny and fascinating personal journey. Paul Spelman started out as a one-man band TV reporter in a small town and ended up in Washington, D.C. Even Worse Than We Had Hoped isn't about life at the top of the media food chain; it's about working your way toward it, and what it's really like chasing a dream in the TV trenches.
