This was a better than average book

This is actually a serious look at the role of TV anchors, done by someone who is a producer. I read the book several years ago, and I recall that there was an effort to look seriously beyond the personalities of the TV anchors, and into the role of the anchor. At that time, it was a glamorous profession, with Rather, Jennings and Browkaw. With the exit of all three from the anchor spot, and the considerable decline in TV's ratings power with the advent of the internet, this book captures a bit of the struggle for the top job, at a time when it meant something. She's not Ben Badikian, the well known critic who seriously explored media concentration, but she's not the National Enquirer either. This should be in journalism schools everywhere, at least for showing how little of TV anchor duties really have to do with journalism.
