In Rough Draft, MSNBC anchor Katy Tur charts her path from local reporter to globe-trotting foreign correspondent and writes about her eccentric and volatile California childhood—all seen from a thousand feet in the air.

Months into the pandemic, Tur received an unexpected package from her mother containing thousands of hours of video footage—the work of her pioneering helicopter journalist parents. Her parents’ aerial coverage of Madonna and Sean Penn’s secret wedding and O.J. Simpson’s notorious run in the white Bronco, which made them rich and famous, felt to Tur like a reminder of who she was before her own breakout success as a reporter. In Rough Draft, she recounts her complicated relationship with her magnetic, ambitious, and, at times, frightening father, and opens up for the first time about her struggles with imposter syndrome, burnout, and stumbles in the anchor chair. She also explores the gift and curse of family legacy, examines the roles and responsibilities of the news, and asks the question: To what extent do we get to write our own story?

Tur is the anchor of “Katy Tur Reports” on MSNBC, a correspondent for NBC News, and the author of the New York Times bestseller Unbelievable. In conversation with Jake Sherman, founder of Punchbowl News and co-author of the New York Times bestseller, The Hill to Die On: The Battle for Congress and the Future of Trump’s America
