Ticking Clock: Behind the Scenes of 60 Minutes
When producer Ira Rosen walked into the 60 Minutes offices in June 1980, he knew he was about to enter television history. His career catapulted him to the heights of TV journalism, breaking some of the most important stories in TV news. But behind the scenes was a war room of clashing producers, anchors, and formidable 60 Minutes figures. Two-time Peabody Award-winning writer and Emmy Award winning producer Ira Rosen reveals the intimate, untold stories of his decades at America’s most iconic news show in Ticking Clock: Behind the Scenes at 60 Minutes. It’s a 60 Minutes story on 60 Minutes itself!
Based on decades of access and experience, readers are taken behind closed doors to offer an incisive look at the show that invented TV investigative journalism. Filled with surprising humor, charm, colorful detail, and unforgettable personalities that battled for prestige, credit, and the desire to scoop everyone else in the game. Rosen dives into the dynamics of top correspondents such as Diana Sawyer, Barbara Walters, and Anderson Cooper as well as revelations of some of 60 Minutes’ most sensational stories. Highly entertaining, dishy, and unforgettable, Ticking Clock is a never-before-told account of the most successful news show in American history.
