King: The Bullitts of Seattle and Their Communications Empire

King: The Bullitts of Seattle and Their Communications Empire Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

KING tells the dramatic story of how Dorothy Bullitt built a great company, King Broadcasting, and used it to influence the largest city of the Pacific Northwest. Starting in 1951 with a clumsy 15-minute news program, KING-TV soon added passionately committed journalists and gave them extraordinary freedom. KING's journalists attacked Seattle's powerful politicians, prodded its inept public agencies, and chided its provincial attitudes, winning a host of national awards in the process.

Review:

"The people who founded King Broadcasting may be to Seattle what the Right Stuff astronauts were to the American space program. Their story, largely untold until now, is rich, riveting, and full of surprises. This book is the best kind of journalistic storytelling — a narrative of a complex family and how they helped to shape a new American city. What's more, it's a fine read." -- Timothy Egan, author of The Good Rain
