Abstract:

"From his humble beginnings on The Mike Walsh Show as the 'snake boy of St Ives', Craig Bennett really has seen, done and reported on it all. In this delightfully honest book he takes us through his early days of fawning over the classic stars of Australian TV; from working as a cadet reporter at News Limited to his bubbly and breathless entertainment reporting on Studio 10. Bennett shows us life behind the scenes through the eyes of a gossip reporter, sparing no details! His heartwarming and witty commentary his adventures and the people he meets along the way will have you shrieking with laughter and clutching your pearls in disbelief. Bars and bed-hopping; beauties and beasts. People that have shaped Australian television and international celebrities. This book delves beyond what the public sees and opens up the lives of those who have shaped our TV, radio and movie experience. It shares the explosive truth behind the scandals we love to love, and dishes the dirt on those we love to hate! This is a candid, uplifting and at sometimes outrageous memoir from a man who has seen how the rich, powerful and influential live - and survived to talk about it! Behind-the-scenes insight in to the Australian media scene. Intergenerational appeal - Covers 4 decades of Australian TV and radio. A unique perspective from a media veteran. Part biography, part confession, it touches not only on this recognisable face's life but also of the myriad celebrities around him." --Publisher's website.
