Format: Paperback
Most people would look at Teresa Tomeo - author, host of an internationally syndicated talk show, and noted speaker - and make the assumption that this rising star never had a day of trouble in her life, that she's one of those lucky ones for whom the stars just seem to align perfectly. Perhaps her willingness to share the true portrait of her life and to smudge the perfect picture a bit is what makes her newest book Newsflash: My Surprising Journey from Secular Anchor to Media Evangelist so incredibly compelling. I have to admit to being in the camp of people who looked at Teresa's rising success and faith-filled attitude without knowing the full truth behind her journey.

Newsflash: My Surprising Journey from Secular Anchor to Media Evangelist is Teresa Tomeo's first person account of the events in her life that have brought her to her current role as a woman on a mission to employ the power of the media to bring people to the fullness of the truth of a life lived with God at one's center. With surprising candor, Tomeo recounts her rise to the heights of the network news business and her subsequent sinking to the depths of the industry, including a trip to the unemployment line. When we think enviously of television personalities who live their lives as open books, rarely do we pause to contemplate the pain they must face when their own personal tragedies are played out in the public eye. Teresa Tomeo, however, was able to take what most would consider a deal-breaking hand and turn it into a winner.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Gerard Webster, award-winning author VINE VOICE on February 2, 2009
Format: Paperback
NEWSFLASH is not only an account of Teresa Tomeo's trek down the wide, easy road modern media lays before us, it's also a story of how we can become addicted to the pablum diet offered up as "entertainnews." She honestly and courageously reveals the initial attraction and the utter hollowness of the glitzy sound-byte business passed off as news. And she is brutally honest about her own journey as she chased after the pied piper of fame and success.
Just as an addict or alcoholic has to "hit bottom" before he can recover, Teresa describes in heart-wrenching detail the events that led her to step back and take a hard look at her life. Her marriage was falling apart; her job demanded too much of her time and too little of her ethics, and her best friend in the business--a "role model" for success--had just committed suicide. The landscape of her life was no more real than one-dimensional stage scenery--and just as unstable. If that were the end of her story, it would be a tragedy.
But then she tells "the rest of the story." It never ceases to amaze me how God can take a seeming disaster and turn it into a blessing. Teresa's saying "let my misery be my ministry" speaks volumes for the good she's accomplished by using her secular-acquired skills in the Master's vinyard.
NEWSFLASH read more like a page-turner than a biography. It's at once realistic but hopeful and inspirational reading for anyone facing the challenge of living the faith in today's PC culture. Highly recommended!

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Mrs. J. Stewart on October 23, 2008
Format: Paperback
This book is not a long or heavy read but it is what is known as a 'good read'. Teresa was, for many years, a secular news broadcaster based mainly in Detroit, US. She was born and raised a Catholic but gradually fell away until she was, by her own admission, so far, far from the Church. Her husband had also falled away and among other troubles their marriage almost collapsed. By the Grace of God he was reconverted and after many trials and tribulations and much anguish on Teresa's part over the various teachings of the Church which she could not come to terms with for such a long time, she too gradually turned around and came Home. She is an Italian American, feisty, fun and also deeply caring and now a fighting force for all that the Church teaches, especially the Pro-life movement.

This book will make you laugh and make you cry but her candid testimony of how she worked through all the problems in order to understand and embrace the Faith and to use all her life experience in her present job as a presenter on Ave Maria Radio ( and a speaker at many conferences all over the US and beyond, not to mention the healing of her wonderful marriage, really does make a good read which I highly recommend and hope will prove to be inspirational and helpful to all who read it.
