Author(s): Brian Stelter
Read the book and discover the real cutthroat world behind the polite smiles and perky demeanors of morning TV.
When America wakes up with personable and charming TV hosts, it's hard to imagine their show bookers having to guard a guest's hotel room all night to prevent rival shows from poaching. But that is just a glimpse of the intense reality revealed in this gripping look into the most competitive time slot in television.
TOP OF THE MORNING illuminates what it takes to win the AM -- when every single viewer counts, tons of jobs are on the line, and hundreds of millions of dollars are at stake. Author Brian Stelter is behind the scenes as hosts are fired and scandals erupt.
So grab a cup of coffee, sit back, and discover the dark side of the sun.
