Tell Me a Story: Fifty Years and 60 Minutes in Television
Don Hewitt is the most successful producer in the history of television news and has been responsible for many of the greatest moments in television history, including the first broadcasts of political conventions, the Kennedy-Nixon debates, and, most spectacularly, 60 Minutes. In Tell Me a Story, Hewitt presents his own remarkable story, from his time as a reporter for Stars & Stripes, to the heady exhilaration of the early days of television, to the triumphs and controversies of 60 Minutes. He speaks bluntly, with affection and humor, about the promise and the shortcomings of television news, and offers some surprising perspective on its continued power and potential. "I may not know a lot," Hewitt is fond of saying, "but I know how to tell a story."
