ST. PETERSBURG, FLORIDA (June 18, 2020) – Longtime Tampa Bay investigative reporter Mike Deeson has written a memoir, Bad News For You Is Good News For Me!,chronicling his 50 years in broadcast journalism.
Published by St. Petersburg Press, the book – now available at local retailers and through Amazon – focuses on the 35 years Deeson spent at WTSP, the Tampa Bay area’s CBS affiliate.
During that time, he exposed corruption in politics, business and the private sector, reported from Saudi Arabia and Guantanamo Bay, witnessed four executions and covered every major story affecting the State of Florida.
He is the recipient of 12 news Emmy Awards, and was named Florida Journalist of the Year by the Society of Professional Journalists.
“I was able to see things firsthand that people could only vicariously live through my stories,” Deeson says. “And I thought folks might be interested in the different things I encountered over the past 50 years.”
Written in a folksy, conversational style, Bad News For You Is Good News For Me! is an informative and entertaining look behind the sacrosanct curtain of broadcast news.
