The Man from KNEW News by Matt Stewart takes you through the doors of a small-town TV news station. Tate Thompson has just graduated from Syracuse and wants a job at ABC News with his father – only his father won’t hire him. He says that new recruits should learn their trade at the bottom and has secured Tate a job at KNEW News in Montana, in a tiny place called Crepeville. Except, it’s called Crapville by the locals and is adjoined by Poopy Falls. It isn’t long before Tate is in it up to his neck. He cannot believe the caliber of the staff at the newsroom – and the fact that they insist on calling him Ted. Nothing ever happens in Crapville until the newsroom manager is arrested for murder. Now Tate has to run the newsroom and try to prove his boss’s innocence. Unfortunately, he puts himself in the line of the killer’s sight. Is it all a set up, as he believes? Does he have time to unravel the mystery before he ends up as the next victim?

The Man from KNEW News by Matt Stewart was a very good book. It had everything needed to make it into a best seller – humor, a real story and good characters. It was very well put together and was very funny. The plot was well thought out; lots of twists and turns in it with a nice one towards the end. I can imagine that even some of the bigger newsrooms are similar in nature to the way this one was written, with similar arguments and the same kind of personalities! The book was left open ended so I am really hoping there is a sequel to this.
