Summary: ''Get it read it and pass it on.''-Bill Moyers ''Most Americans living today never heard Ed Murrow in a live broadcast. This book is for them I want them to know that broadcast journalism was established by someone with the highest standards. Tabloid crime stories so much a part of the lust for ratings by today's news broadcasters held no interest for Murrow. He did like Hollywood celebrities but interviewed them for his entertainment programs; they had no place on his news programs.
My book is focused on this life in journalism. I offer it in the hope that more people in and out of the news business will get to know Ed Murrow. Perhaps in time the descent from Murrow's principles can be reversed.''-Bob Edwards

Bob Edwards has hosted NPR's Morning Edition the most popular program in all broadcast media since its premiere in November 1979
''Edward R. Murrow and the Birth of Broadcast Journalism is lean and straightforward yet comprehensive. It captures the talent as well as the trials and ultimate tragedy of a great journalist a man who left his mark on the 20th Century Written by a professional who has something to say for himself.'' -Richard C. Hottelet''It's amazing to me that Bob Edwards who didn't know Murrow knows him so well. He gives you all of Murrow-the upper Murrow who could make a Nazi death camp come alive and the lower Murrow who could do rehearsed celebrity interviews for television. I found in this book the Murrow I knew.'' -Daniel Schorr Senior News Analyst NPR''Get it read it and pass it on. Every aspiring broadcast journalism should have it.'' -Bill Moyers
