Olga Campos Benz Reading & Signing-It’s News to Me: A Novel
Thirty years as a broadcast journalist in four different markets provided Olga with plenty of material about the unglamorous life in front of a TV camera. She knew when she stepped down from the anchor desk that writing a book would be the best way to share the unbelievable day-to-day events that go on in a newsroom.
THIS IS NOT A MEMOIR. Instead, it’s contemporary fiction featuring a bold, beautiful, bilingual Latina television news reporter whose life is endangered by criminals, enhanced by sensuous encounters, complicated by loved ones and spiked throughout with shots of tequila and irreverent humor! This is a modern story with a surprising and colorful Latin twist.
Despite all the current media-bashing, local television news is still the most trusted source for information that directly impacts our daily lives. After reading her book, she hopes readers will see news personalities as real human beings who inspire us, make us laugh, and are worth cheering for and who will always be welcomed into their homes and lives – like she was for more than 30 years
