CNN’s Piers Morgan Writing Memoir

CNN anchor Piers Morgan has inked a book deal with Gallery books for a new memoir, to be released in October. The book, Shooting Straight: Guns, Gays, God, and George Clooney, will focus on Morgan’s tenure at CNN.

The AP has details:

Morgan, in a statement issued by Gallery, promised a “warts and all” account of life at CNN and said the book would be like “‘The Newsroom’ on steroids,” referring to the HBO series.

The book will be centered around real-world news events, written in a diary format a la his last memoir, The Insider. The announcement comes the same day it was announced that ABC’s Robin Roberts is writing a memoir.
