Those stories were featured in 2000 in his first book "Larry Kane's Philadelphia (Temple Press, Foreword by Dan Rather), a regional best seller.

The Action News format changed the face of contemporary broadcasting in the early 1970's, placing the emphasis on local news connected to extraordinary community involvement by stations across the country. His success brought him to New York and ABC News and WABC TV. After 18 months, he returned to Philadelphia and completed his unique trifecta, working for the NBC and CBS stations.

I had the chance to read Larry Kane's new novel about newsroom intrigue and political deception called Death By Deadline. It is a fast and furious story of moral decay in media and the price we all pay when journalistic values are compromised by greed and self-interest. The action doesn't let up and Kane, who is an accomplished reporter, anchor and author has written characters of depth and dimension. There are plot twists and turns that are both plausable and suprising , at the same time.He made a career of reporting on the lives of real people, so his fictional characters seem all too human and , in many instances, all too flawed. He shows how a few corrupt people with alterior motives in media, government, law enforcement and the civic sector endanger the lives of millions of people. The ending is provocative and shocking.Great read!!!

Death By Deadline is a spellbinder that gives you a peek behind the decision making process in pressure-packed TV newsrooms. Larry Kane's new work of fiction centers on the mysterious and the maladjusted. Part of the mystery is a fiery act of violence on a highway. The maladjusted are the news leaders who make questionable decisions about how to cover the story. Death by Deadline is a great read that will appeal to news junkies and mystery lovers.

Death By Deadline is a good story told well about the moral decay in media and the resulting compromise of values by greed and self-interest. The dialogue needed some work, but otherwise great!

How sad, it took 10 pages of struggling through this very banal almost comic book work before I archived it. Larry Kane was a wonderful TV personality, currently a good political commentator but misses the mark with this one. Good reviews must have been written by friends and relatives!

A disclaimer: I know Larry Kane and he autographed the book for me. That said, I have read other books by people I know and this is a cracker jack tale, told from many different angles. A story about corruption in the broadcast media and its effect on media- and non-media types, as well as the listening, viewing public, it is a riveting book. After starting it, I could not put the book down, but eschewed other reading until I had finished it. There is no question that there is a surreal tone to it. Could it happen? Maybe not, but who knows? Shades perhaps of Orson Welles' Hallowe'en broadcast, it concludes with the aftermath of mass hysteria brought on by news reporting of a disaster which is entirely untrue. It is also a cautionary illustration of what can happen when the rush to be first trumps the search for truth. I enjoyed the development of plot and character, and found the dialogue very credible.

Interestingly, the story does not have an "all's well" ending. Many issues are unresolved, the guilty are not necessarily caught and punished, but in some cases, rise to positions of greater authority and power. The story has a "frontier justice" quality to it, with several characters taking the law into their own hands, undiscovered. I found it a very interesting book and recommend it.
