Award-winning news correspondent John Stossel
is co-anchor of ABC News "20/20."
Eight million to 10 million people watch his
program weekly. Often, he ends "20/20"
with a TV column called "Give Me a Break,"
which challenges conventional wisdom.
Stossel's prime-time specials on myths, parenting
issues, sex and trends in pop culture rate among
the top news programs on the air and have earned
him uncommon praise.
Stossel takes this reporting expertise and applies
it to his weekly newspaper column for Creators
Syndicate. Covering topics newspaper readers
care about, Stossel pokes fun at the ridiculous
and lauds the excellent. So do Stossel's incredible
TV ratings will translate from TV to print?
The answer to that question is a resounding
YES! Last year, HarperCollins published Stossel's
book "Give Me a Break," and readers
(the same ones who read newspapers) made it
a New York Times best seller for 11 weeks.
Stossel has received 19 Emmy Awards and has
been honored five times for excellence in consumer
reporting by the National Press Club. Among
his other awards are the George Polk Award for
Outstanding Local Reporting and the George Foster
He is a graduate of Princeton University, with
a Bachelor of Arts degree in psychology.
