The House of Representatives voted 228-192 to defund National Public Radio this afternoon. This week Steve Oney (author of And the Dead Shall Rise) landed a book deal to write a book on “the history, trials and tribulations of NPR.”
The Kneerim & Williams Agency negotiated the deal with Ben Loehnen at Simon & Schuster. Publisher Jonathan Karp had this statement: “We’re delighted to have acquired Steve Oney’s exploration of the personalities and conflicts at NPR. This is the rare media story that transcends the industry and speaks to larger cultural issues, and we believe this book will offer valuable insights into the workings of an important and intriguing journalistic organization.”
