Sav­age News

Katy Tur’s Unbe­liev­able meets The Dev­il Wears Pra­da and Full Frontal in this fast-paced enter­tain­ing debut nov­el about the (not so) glam­orous cable news busi­ness by for­mer Chief White House Cor­re­spon­dent for CNN Jes­si­ca Yellin. Sav­age News is a juicy roman à clef debut about a female cable news cor­re­spon­dent forced to nav­i­gate rat­ings wars, sex­u­al harass­ment in the work­place, ridicu­lous news stan­dards, and an inter­na­tion­al diplo­mat­ic and polit­i­cal sit­u­a­tion in the White House. Natal­ie Sav­age has final­ly seen her hard work pay off when she’s assigned to cov­er the White House for her net­work ATN. The prob­lem? The assign­ment is only tem­po­rary; a test run to see if Natal­ie has what it takes. Natal­ie has got­ten to where she is by rely­ing on her deter­mi­na­tion her prin­ci­ples and her news sense. Her com­pe­ti­tion for the posi­tion is a 26-year-old over­grown frat boy Ryan McG­reavy who got his big tele­vi­sion break by eat­ing raw pig scro­tum on a real­i­ty show. Of course he’s winning.

Jes­si­ca Yellin is the for­mer chief White House cor­re­spon­dent for CNN, and an Emmy and Gra­cie award win­ning polit­i­cal jour­nal­ist report­ing for CNNABC News, and MSNBC. She is also the founder and CEO of Sage, a mul­ti­plat­form media com­pa­ny. Her work has been pub­lished in The New York Times, The Dai­ly Beast, The Hive, Enter­tain­ment Week­ly, and The Los Ange­les Times. Yellin is a fel­low with the USC Annen­berg Cen­ter on Com­mu­ni­ca­tions Lead­er­ship & Pol­i­cy and sits on the board of the Cen­ter for Pub­lic Integri­ty. She lives in Los Angeles.
