STOP THE PRESS . . .
Here's the front page story: Pulitzer Prize-winning, buttoned-up journalist, Harry Crandall, becomes publisher of small-town newspaper. Firing reporters left and right, he makes no friends in the newsroom, especially not with the cute, rough-around-the-edges editor, Jamie McLane. She’s got a pool going — first reporter who can find out why the cold-hearted - but - extremely gorgeous taskmaster had to leave New York takes the jackpot. And she plans to be the winner . . . if she can keep from falling for the jerk.
ARE YOU GETTING THIS ALL DOWN?
Here's the curve ball: Turns out Crandall thinks McLane's one of the best natural reporters he's ever met. Sure, she needs practice — some late nights; a little field work; a lot of arguing behind closed doors that leaves him ready for a cold shower. His reporter’s instincts tell him she's working hard to get the story on him, but if she wants him to reveal his sources, she'll have to be willing to give him something of hers in return . . .
