Author Series – Alisyn Camerota
Alisyn Camerota • Amanda Wakes Up
Alisyn Camerota, is the co-anchor of CNN’s morning show “New Day”. Prior to CNN, Alisyn worked at Fox News Channel, NBC and America’s Most Wanted. As an award-winning journalist, Alisyn knows a little something about the fast-paced world of cable news and will be speaking about her new novel Amanda Wakes Up.
The book offers a behind-the-scenes peek at a fictional morning show — a blur of breaking news, big scoops, and colorful personalities. The protagonist, Amanda Gallo, takes the reader into the TV trenches, as she lands a plum gig at a big-time cable news station, and quickly learns her dream job is a minefield of ethical and personal dilemmas.
Alisyn will discuss what it’s like to be a journalist in today’s hyper-charged world of broadcast news, what “truth” is, the daily struggles of journalists to get it right in a ratings-driven climate and why toxic work environments are no longer being tolerated.
