ANCHORED – A Journalist’s Search For Truth (Autographed)
Autographed by Mort Crim
Mort Crim reported on major conflicts around the world for more than four decades and became the consummate stylish anchorman of the 1970s and 80s, to the point that he served as the inspiration for Will Ferrell’s affectionate parody in the movie Anchorman.
But his award-winning journalism career was no joke, and Crim’s memoir takes readers behind the camera to show what life was like when the local anchorman was as revered as the professional athlete, and just as overpaid. It was a glamorous life, working alongside some of journalism’s legends: Walter Cronkite, David Brinkley, Dan Rather and Ted Koppel.
“While [Crim] has spent a professional lifetime focusing on the most interesting people in a fascinating world, he’s done an extraordinary job of concealing one of the most interesting stories of all—his own. Until now. Read on!”
— Ted Koppel, Former Anchor, ABC Nightline
“Mort’s memoir fascinates, mesmerizes and, most importantly, inspires us to learn and search ourselves for our personal truths.”
— David Hartman, Former Host, Good Morning America, ABC
“In an era where speculation passes for news, thank you for always telling the truth. You left your mark not only in front of the camera, but throughout the community with your tireless efforts to make where we live a better place to be. Thanks for everything, Mort. You were Detroit’s answer to Walter Cronkite.”
— Jeff Daniels, Actor
“Mort Crim is one of the pioneers and legends of local broadcasting. His style, wit, tenaciousness, and … I’m sorry. I have no idea who Mort Crim is. Umm, but I’m sure he’s written a hell of a book that will hopefully go on to sell over 10,000 copies. Is that a lot?”
— Will Ferrell, Actor
