Viewer Discretion Advised

"Viewer Discretion Advised" by Cindy Roesel

“Everyone who works in the news business always says they plan to write a book. This is that book,” says Emmy award-winning journalist, Cindy Roesel, whose new novel, “Viewer Discretion Advised” (ISBN 9780985128104) offers a glimpse into what goes on internally at broadcast news stations.

After being fired from her job in Los Angeles, Charlene “Charley” Thomas moves to sizzling Miami and begins working as a news director at a local television station. While getting used to her new gig, Charley wakes up to the fact that her station manager, Jonathan Lefton, is the boss from hell who will do anything for a story; no matter who gets hurt in the process.

When nude photos of noon anchor, Miranda Andrews, are discovered in the men’s room of a Key West bar, all hell breaks loose. They end up on Lefton’s desk and soon he promotes her over the main anchor, sparking off a firestorm. Miranda is quickly thrown into the mix and assigned special reports. Charley finds herself overseeing an investigation that could shine light on the guilt of a dirty cop. Real life begins to mimic the drama of broadcast news when station personalities face life and death all for ratings and Emmys.

Working in the news industry for many years, Roesel saw compelling real-life stories and odd work situations that led her to believe that what goes on in the newsroom is often more interesting than what is shown on the broadcast. Roesel aims to shed light on the quirks of TV news personalities viewers invite into their homes every day.

“Through my novel, I’m able to capture some of the excitement, wonder and absolute absurdity I’ve been a part of and have witnessed,” says Roesel. “The complete madness that attracts many people to this business, so that they can be on TV and recognized, is pretty astounding.”

“Viewer Discretion Advised” is available for sale online at Amazon.com and other channels.
