In Deadlines and Disruption, Stephen B. Shepard chronicles his nearly 50 years in the news business―landing his first job as a reporter, finding stories, meeting deadlines, and working his way up to become editor-in-chief of BusinessWeek, where he presided over some of the most important stories of the age.
Primarily, though, this is a story of upheaval, transition, and the future of news. When Shepard stepped down from BusinessWeek in 2005, journalism was already being transformed by the Internet. At an age when most people retire, Shepard jumped back into the middle of it all. As founder and dean of the Graduate School of Journalism at the City University of New York, he is on the front lines of training the new generation of journalists.
Deadlines and Disruption is a treasure of insight from one of the most respected people in journalism. Anyone concerned with the state of news creation, delivery, and consumption today―and how it all plays out in society―cannot afford to miss this book.
A little slow at times, the author has had an amazing life but tends to tell his story and lecturer, an academic. Too much in his head. Slow going.Published 19 months ago by Barbara Levinson
