Editorial Reviews

Review

A Newscast for the Masses contains a great deal of never-before-assembled information that will prove interesting to Detroit local history buffs and students of broadcast journalism. Kiska has exhausted all available data and added to it with the many interviews he has conducted himself. The people who lived it are telling the story. --Jane Briggs-Bunting, director and professor of journalism at the Michigan State University School of Journalism

Book Description

Format: Paperback
A really good book if you were a person who grew up like me in the Detroit area and spent time watching the local news. I just wished the author covered more of the 80's and early 90's when the CNN's and Fox news really started coming into the american homes (via cable)and the impact then of the local news networks up against the CNN's and Fox news.
