by Bob Brunner
Bob Brunner spent more than two decades at WSAZ from 1968 to 1990. His book is part tell-all, part memoir as he looks back over his years as a reporter, new director and anchor. His recollections are full of personal stories about political heavy weights office. Wonderful photographs document his long career in the media world rubbing elbows with such names as Tom Brokaw, Oprah Winfrey, John Chancellor and Dan Rather and several Presidents.

Brunner pulls no punches with â€˜tell-allâ€™ memoir
Over the past half century,
Bob Brunner has been one of West Virginiaâ€™s constant, and familiar, faces,
covering a full gamut of news, from the hard ball of politics to the
happy events television reporters often are fond of feasting on.
Drawing on a wealth of such
experiences, and his brief stint as a governorâ€™s communications director,
Brunner has penned a book, available exclusively at Tamarack.
â€œBob Brunnerâ€™s Reporterâ€™s
Recollectionsâ€ is what he describes as a â€œtell-allâ€ book, a 170-page inventory
of his memoirs, and packed with â€œtons of pictures.â€
Pulling no punches, he strips away the glamor
normally associated with political luminaries and chronicles some more earthly
dimensions of past West Virginia governors.
