Five Seconds to Air: Broadcast Journalism Behind the Scenes

Front Cover
Hillsboro Press, 1998 - Broadcasters - 148 pages
In Five Seconds to Air, Losure shares his life story with great fun and panache as he chronicles his roots in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and his journey to Atlanta to anchor at CNN Headline News, a position he held for eleven years. He brings us face-to-face with some of the stories and events that have shaped our lives, including the Persian Gulf War and the 1989 San Francisco earthquake, as he recounts these events from the inside perspective of the CNN anchor who kept Americans informed while the news broke and unfolded. On a more serious note, Losure shares a very personal battle with cancer and his subsequent chemotherapy.
