On my America Weekend show today, I talked with Brian Stelter, who reports on the television industry for the NY Times, about his new book, “Top Of The Morning,” in which he goes behind the scenes at the battle between “Today” and “Good Morning America” to dominate morning viewing. Stelter explained the huge amounts of money at stake, how NBC’s promotion and later demotion of Ann Curry was such a mistake, why CBS continues to limp along in third place, and how competition from not just other networks but also our other electronic sources of information impacts what those shows do. I also asked him why, in making the rounds to promote the book, he was welcomed at “GMA” but not at “Today.”
