‘American Story’ to Become A Book

Bob Dotson‘s long-running “American Story” feature for the “Today” show is being turned into a book. Dotson has been with NBC since 1975 when he joined WKYC in Cleveland. He’s reported from NBC’s Dallas and Atlanta bureaus before moving to New York where his “American Story” features have been a staple of “Today.”

Dotson, who’s won more than 100 awards for his writing, is the author of two books: “Make it Memorable,” for aspiring journalists; and the other a memoir, “In Pursuit of the American Dream.”

“What we know about America mostly comes from journalists who travel in herds, trailing politicians or camped out at big stories, pouncing on problems to repeat over and over,” Dotson says. “This book is for everyone who yearns to feel better about America again.”

Viking Press will publish “American Story with Bob Dotson.”
