A network correspondent at age 30, Jessica Savitch came up on the fast track in the hectic, hard-driving field of TV news. But by the time of her accidental death in 1983, Jessica had already lost the race. Savitch was an NBC anchorwoman who fought personal demons, drugs & alcohol, two failed marriages (one to a closeted gay man, who committed suicide), a pregnancy that she terminated and told friends that she had miscarried, and being a woman in a male-dominated news industry. This is the story of the tragic newswoman's life from her meteoric rise to the top to her painful fall caused by her self-destructive ways. Almost Golden takes a look at TV news, where the quest for celebrity and the values of journalism collide.

Priority Mail shipping for this item costs $7.00 at the request of the buyer. Otherwise, the shipping rate given here applies to orders shipped via Media Mail within the U.S. only. Orders consisting of multiple purchases packaged together ship by any of these delivery methods at a discounted rate, usually for only $1.00 per additional item plus the shipping fee for the first item (determined to be the one with the highest delivery charge). International buyers: please contact us with your destination country for applicable base shipping rates. Multiple purchases that are packaged together save shipping costs for you, too!

Inquiries from all shoppers are responded to promptly and courteously. Buyers are encouraged to ask questions prior to placing orders, as all sales are final unless the product you receive differs significantly from that which was advertised here in terms of either the product itself or its promised condition. In other words, “buyer’s remorse” does not qualify for a refund. Exceptions are made only in the event that a buyer is willing to return at his or her own expense an unopened, BRAND NEW item for a refund of the original purchase price only. No original shipping costs will be refunded, unless we are at fault for sending you the wrong item or misrepresenting the product and/or its condition. This hasn’t happened yet, but if it does: you are guaranteed a refund of the purchase price, the original shipping fee, PLUS the cost to ship the item back to us. In addition, we promise that no retaliatory feedback will be left for negative comments received on such transactions. We stand behind our service, and accept responsibility for any mistakes made.

Thank you for looking!
