Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0533084768, Hardcover)

In the world of television, they don’t come much bigger than Ted Turner and Pat Robertson. And while Lawrence H. Rogers, II is a television pioneer and was in business for over thirty years, his name is scarcely a household word, except to TV executives. Yet this is the story of how Bud Rogers fought Turner and Robertson to acquire a TV station and, against all odds, was successful.Orlando Shoot-out, told by Bud Rogers himself, provides a revealing look at just how things are done in televisionland. Courtroom drama, high finance, and executive dealings abound. Exciting enough to be a novel, this book instead is real life that reads like fiction. If you are an insider, you will be, by turns, amused, incredulous, and intrigued to learn the inside story on just one of the many deals that have been engineered in the big game of acquiring TV stations. If you are just a concerned citizen, here’s your chance to gain a little insight into the inner workings of one of the biggest businesses in America today. And guess what, folks? The little guy sometimes wins!
