Random House Signs Deal For Book On The Rise Of Fox News

New York magazine writer Gabriel Sherman has signed with Random House to write a book about Fox News. The book, The Loudest Voice in the Room: An Inside Account of the Rise of Fox News will expand on Sherman’s New York cover story on cable news, “Chasing Fox,” which appeared in magazine last fall.

As Michael Calderone reports, Sherman’s book will feature extensive reporting on Fox News boss and founder Roger Ailes:

Sherman, a contributing editor at New York magazine, penned a cover story last year on the cable news universe and how both MSNBC and CNN are trying to catch up to the ratings leader. Sherman’s deeply reported piece—appropriately titled “Chasing Fox”—made The Cutline’s 2010 list of top long-form magazine writing.

Jonathan Jao will edit the book, which does not yet have a publication date.
