“Chicken Noodle News” – Best Book of 2009!

From the Desk of Joe Rollins

If you’re perusing the book store for something juicy to read, look no further than Chicken Noodle News: A CNN Whodunit written by my best buddy and client of my firm for over 25 years, John Baker. John was at CNN from the beginning, starting as a live TV director and ultimately becoming the Vice-President of Operations before retiring in the early 1990’s. Needless to say, his account of how the first all news network got its start – with eccentric personalities and wannabe TV professionals – is a fun ride.

John will be at the Jimmy Carter Presidential Library located at 441 Freedom Parkway on Tuesday, September 22nd at 7:00 p.m., reading from Chicken Noodle News and signing copies of his book. He will also be signing copies of his book at the Barnes & Noble located in Buckhead on September 29th at 7:00 p.m. The book will be on sale at the Carter Library courtesy of A Capella Books at 484 Moreland Avenue in Little Five Points. It can also be purchased through and I encourage you to attend either of these special events and meet John – he’s quite an interesting guy, and I think his stories are fascinating.

Chicken Noodle News is a peek into the beginnings of what has become the Mecca of media, as told by someone who was there through it all. Read it! You won’t be disappointed.
