PASADENA, CA – July 12th 2017 – Incorgnito Publishing Press is pleased to announce the signing of Tim Ortman’s, “News Real”, a memoir about his extensive experience during the hey-day of network news.

As Mr. Ortman explains it, “In today’s thousand-channel news environment, it’s tough to envision a time when everyone was, more-or-less, on the same page: to recall a less contentious and fractured framework for disseminating information.

Such a time did truly exist. It is neither Byzantine nor completely bygone. But, sometime between Marconi and Musk, viewers enjoyed a reliable and secure sense that their news was true. It was the heyday of global network news coverage. Of course, as viewers our opinions differed wildly, just like today. The narratives told, featured protagonists and antagonists, just like today. It was the delivery mechanism back then that so contrasts with the way we get our news today.”

Tim Ortman spent 35 years - a lifetime, working in television news, having worked for all the major U.S television news networks (NBC, ABC, CBS, CNN, FOX). As an Emmy nominated and award-winning cameraman and producer, his understanding of the overall television production process is comprehensive; spanning four decades of experience shooting, lighting, story editing, writing and producing.

But, his chops were truly made on the front lines of news as part of the Foreign Press Corps. His globe-trotting travels have taken him on assignments in five continents, covering everything from presidential elections to Papal visits, Olympiads to Olympic Park bombings, war, revolution, famine, terrorist attacks, Cold War Summits, the fall of Communism and the occasional press conference. He has been fortunate to have occupied a front row seat on numerous historically significant happenings.

“News Real”, will be released in May of 2018. For more information contact Michael Conant This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.   or by phone 888-859-0792
