New York Times bestselling author and award-winning journalist Michael D’Antonio’s new book about her life & career in health care is out today
NEW YORK — — Michael D. Antonioli has written a book, “What You Don’t Know About Health Care: A Life in Health Care” that takes a look at life & work as a health care journalist, a memoir about her first time working as a hospital reporter, & a biography of a doctor, which is one of the most widely read books about health care.
Antonioli, the co-author of “The End of America: How the Global Health Crisis Will Transform Our World,” also wrote a novel about his life & experiences as a journalist in 2010.
In the new book, he tells the story of his life as a healthcare reporter & his journey from working in a large medical newsroom in London, England, to working as the health editor at The New York Post & the managing editor of USA Today.
Antonios memoir, which he co-wrote with his wife, Lisa, is the storyof a young reporter in her early twenties who had to navigate an industry she couldn’t understand.
She became a freelance health editor in London & eventually became a medical editor in the New York newspaper & eventually worked for the New Yorker & the New Republic & eventually took a job at the Washington Post.
She started her own newspaper & later went to work for CBS.
She was on her way to becoming a medical reporter when she came into the office of the Times, which was owned by CBS & was part of the CBS empire.
She was a senior reporter at the Times & worked in the health section.
The newspaper & the magazine & the radio station she worked at were owned by the same company, CBS.
They both made money & she was working as an editor at the time.
It wasn’t until she was on maternity leave & the baby was born that she got a call from a reporter in London who wanted to know if she was available to cover the baby.
She wasn’t available to be in the office & she went back to London & said, “Well, I think I might have to get a call back & it’s on the way.”
She had to get another call back.
She didn’t have time to call back when she got another call from the baby’s father & he said, “(Your son’s name) was born & I just have to go out to the hospital & see if he is breathing.”
I didn’t want to leave her because she was the one in the room & I said, (The reporter) “You’re wrong.
You are right.
He is breathing & I am going to get him out & he is doing fine & you are going to have to call the baby back.”
So, I called back & said I will take you back to the newspaper & we will get the story & we’ll write a piece for the paper.
So, it was my first time being an editor in a health magazine & I got the story for the Times.
She & her staff & her friends & family came to the office to see it & it went viral.
It was a tremendous hit.
It went to a million-plus copies.
I was in New York & they were so impressed.
The next day they invited me back to be an editor there & I was invited to join them.
I never looked back & I worked with the staff that I did & it was an honor & a privilege to be part of this great company & it really changed my life.
You get to write for a different kind of newspaper & it can be a very different experience.
It can be really exciting.
When I was first starting out as a reporter, I didn´t know how to write & I didn&t know what the word “editor” meant & I would just say, “I can’t do that.”
I had never done a newspaper & I had just gotten my license & I couldn&t use it.
The editor who had been my editor for 15 years told me, “You know, you don&t need to use it, but I will give you a piece of paper & I will write a story about you.”
So I started doing that & I did that & then I went on to become the editor of The New Yorker.
I had a great career & I still had a lot of fun.
It took me to a lot places.
I went to New Orleans, I went up to Chicago & I went out to Los Angeles & then on to New York.
When I got to the Wall Street Journal & I started to write a feature story about the merger between the Times& Washington Post&.; the next day, it went to No. 1 & it became a bestseller.
The Wall Street News was one of my
