Former KATC news anchor Hoyt Harris says his new memoir, Before the Cameras, is a long-time dream come true. After more than three decades in television news, Hoyt describes how his upbringing and early escapades led him to the ultimate adventure: life as a news reporter and anchor. From being recognized at a book store in Paris to riding on a room service cart in an attempt to interview Cher while she was in town, this book has all the behind-the-scenes details you could want. His book is available on Amazon.

Hoyt Harris spent some time with Rob Kirkpatrick and Bernadette Lee for a KPEL interview on Friday morning.
