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 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!
