Top of the Morning: Book Review
A version of this story appeared in the May 3 issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine.
New York Times reporter Brian Stelter promises to take readers “inside the cutthroat world of morning TV” through the rise and fall of Ann Curry in Top of the Morning, his new book about the rivalry between Today and Good Morning America.
Curry inherited the Today co-anchor slot from Meredith Vieira in June 2011 only to be unceremoniously dumped for Savannah Guthrie in June 2012.
There also are detours about Good Morning America co-host Robin Roberts’ struggle with cancer and the rise of MSNBC’s Morning Joe.
