A behind-the-scenes chronicle of the rise of ESPN by the authors of the New York Times bestseller Live From New York.

About the Author

James Andrew Miller is the author of Running in Place: Inside the Senate and Live from New York. He has also written for the New York Times, Life, the Washington Post and Newsweek. His various positions in television include Senior Executive Producer of "Anderson Cooper 360" and Executive VP of Original Programming at USA Network


Miller and Shales's (Live from New York) second book wisely uses an oral history format to tell the inside story of multimedia sports broadcasting giant ESPN. They crafted their long but engaging narrative by interviewing over 550 current and former ESPN broadcasters, executives, and off-air staff who add their own unique insights into the network's 30-year history and illuminate the many behind-the-scenes personality and ego clashes. A few athletes and broadcasting competitors chime in as well. Tony Korn-heiser, Chris Berman, Dick Vitale, Jim Rome, Keith Olbermann, and others are candid in both their complaints and compliments. Matt McCarthy, Joan Baker, and coauthor Miller swap unremarkable narration duties. Recommended for anyone who takes sports media seriously.
