  • This event has passed.

The Women of WHC and WHC’s EmptyNesters are thrilled to welcome two-time Peabody Award-winning writer and producer Ira Rosen on Sunday, March 20 at 10:30 am on Zoom. During his lecture, he will reveal the intimate, untold stories of his decades at America’s most iconic news show – 60 Minutes.

Based on decades of access and experience, Rosen’s book takes us behind closed doors to offer an incisive look at the show that invented TV investigative journalism. With surprising humor, charm, and an eye for colorful detail, Rosen delivers an authoritative account of the unforgettable personalities that battled for prestige, credit, and the desire to scoop everyone else in the game. As Mike Wallace’s top producer, Rosen reveals the interview secrets that made Wallace’s work legendary, and the flaring temper that made him infamous. Later, as senior producer of ABC News Primetime Live and 20/20, Rosen exposes the competitive environment among famous colleagues like Diane Sawyer and Barbara Walters, and the power plays between correspondents Chris Wallace, Anderson Cooper, and Chris Cuomo.

A master class in how TV news is made, Rosen shows readers how 60 Minutes puts together a story when sources are explosive, unreliable, and even dangerous

Highly entertaining, dishy, and unforgettable, Ticking Clock is a never-before-told account of the most successful news show in American history.

This program is free and open to everyone. RSVP is required.
