"You should know this book has a lot to do with the sad truth about journalism: what goes on inside of a newsroom can be just as ugly as the world we report on."
After reaching the height of her career by becoming a top market news reporter, Joangel Concepcion decided to abandon the profession she loved. In Dropping the Mic, Joangel shares a rare glimpse inside the politics, toxicity and daily pressures of American news stations. Off the newsroom payroll, she takes you on her tumultuous journey reporting on a range of important, national news - including gun control, the Ebola virus, immigration and spillover violence from Mexico, along the American border. Her story explores the world of journalism as the industry adapts to the inevitable social media takedown in current society, budget cuts, and public distrust. Dropping the Mic is also about so much more. It is an inspiring story about survival, owning who you are and being brave enough to know when to walk away.
Joangel Concepcion was born and raised in Miami, FL. After graduating from Temple University with a degree in Broadcast Journalism, she bounced around the United States reporting on a range of important, compelling news. She currently lives in New York. This is her first book.
