Dr. Sanjay Gupta Talks ‘Monday Mornings’

Tomorrow is a big day for CNN’s Dr. Sanjay Gupta. Gupta–in between his work for CNN and his practice as a neurosurgeon at a hospital in Atlanta–found the time to write a novel. His novel, Monday Mornings, is about a weekly meeting held at most hospitals to discuss what went wrong in surgeries the previous week.

Gupta will be hosting a book party in New York tomorrow evening, look for CNN’s report from there later this week.

Gupta was also was profiled by USA Today:

He says he keeps his two lives — surgeon and TV star — separate, not wearing scrubs on TV, for instance. He joined CNN in the summer of 2001, recruited by then-CNN chairman Tom Johnson. He had never worked in TV before. His first big story: reporting on the 9/11 attacks from Ground Zero.

“I’m a reporter here,” he says, once he’s in CNN’s massive newsroom. “I’m informed by my background, yes, but I’m pretty tough on myself. I make sure I’ve got it right. I feel good about what I do. We’re diligent.”
