Abstract:

For the past 25 years--first as the blithe spirit of the Today show, then as the only woman ever to anchor a nightly network news program solo--Katie Couric has been familiar to millions. Yet despite the public exposure, few have penetrated the secrets behind her closely guarded personal life and her struggles in the cutthroat world of television news. In this probing portrait, biographer Klein shows us the strong, independent woman and the needy wife and lover; the grieving widow famed for her kindness to others and the competitive diva; the consummate interviewer and the stumbling anchor. Drawing on scores of interviews, Klein chronicles Katie's rise to the top--from her early days at CNN and local television to her 15-year run on Today. Neither a whitewash nor a hatchet job, this is an unflinching look at a remarkable woman and the media kingdom she's sought to rule.--From publisher description.
