Jeffrey L. Diamond is an award-winning producer with forty years of experience in television news. In 2015, his first murder mystery, Live to Air, was published by River Grove Books, an imprint of the Greenleaf Book Group In his second novel, Live to Tape, Ethan Benson has no idea his life is about to change forever when he walks through the door of The Weekly Reporter where he’s starting a new job as a senior producer, charged with managing the show’s mercurial anchorman. As he settles in on his first day, he’s summoned by the executive producer and assigned to a story about a rich heart surgeon who’s confessed to the salacious murder of a young runaway he picked up on the gritty streets of a South Boston combat zone. The stories are set in the world of broadcast journalism, their hero, a complex but talented producer whose crime fighting skills are modeled on Mr. Diamond’s long career in network news. Diamond began his career in the early 1970’s at ABC News where he produced at Special Events, Weekend News, and the ABC Evening News, before moving to the weekly newsmagazine, 20/20, where he supervised hundreds of stories, ranging from several minutes in length to a full hour of programming.
