Once upon a time, folks would sit down together in the evening to watch the nightly news. That’s not the case today.

"Up All Night" by Lisa Napoli (Harry N. Abrams)

News runs 24-hours a day with constant breaking news banners radiating from your screens.

So how did we get to this point? That’s the question author Lisa Napoli answers in her latest book, “Up All Night: Ted Turner, CNN, and the Birth of 24-Hour News.” The book looks at how and when CNN was launched and how it’s impacted the way we consume media ever since. Today on AirTalk, Larry sits down with Napoli to discuss the new book. Do you have questions for the author? Call 866-893-5722.
