NYT biz reporter to write book about morning television
Brian Stelter, a business journalist for The New York Times, announced Monday morning that he’s writing a book about morning television.
On his blog, Stelter writes, “Tentatively titled ‘The Top Of The Morning,’ it’s going to be about ‘Today,’ ‘Good Morning America’ and the other morning shows that collectively set the nation’s breakfast table every day.
“The publisher, Grand Central, described it thusly to Publishers Weekly: ‘A candid look at the surreal lives of the surrogate families that we invite into our homes each morning — and why the shows matter so much to the fragmenting television business.’
Stelter is the founder of the TVNewser blog when he was in college. He sold that to MediaBistro.com. Since joining the Times, he has been instrumental in its Media Decoder blog.
Stelter is looking for reader input on what they’d like to know about the morning shows for his book.
