Abstract:

In 1979, Newsweek dubbed her the Golden Girl. Blond, beautiful, immensely popular with the public, Jessica Savitch had it all. A network anchor at thirty-one, she had made it to the top in a male-dominated world of big stars, big money, and super-egos. But behind the scenes was another story - a woman desperately chasing her dream through a private nightmare of drugs, depression, and disastrous romances and spiraling ever downward - sad victim of her own relentless ambition, and the fast and fickle industry that created her.
