The bad news is .. you’re about to hear his voice, as he talks about his book, which Publishers Weekly said includes “guffaw-inducing jokes on almost every page.”

America’s news business — once dominated by powerful newspapers, legendary wire services, and tiffany broadcast networks — is quite a different thing today than it was when veteran journalist Dan Rather was a rookie.

And many of the changes are not for the better, he argues in a new book called “Rather Outspoken.”

It turns out the octogenerian former CBS Evening News anchor still feels pretty strongly about the profession — and his storied role in it. And he is not shy about saying so.

Some people travel to see the sights, some for self-enrichment, some for adventure.

And then there are those who travel to far-off places to volunteer their help. “Voluntourists,” they’re sometimes called. And Ken Budd is one of them.

The death of his father hit him hard, and made him reassess what he was doing with his life. That was the moment an opportunity serendipitously presented itself, and .. well, Ken Budd had found a new calling.

His new book is called “The Voluntourist.”

For half a century one of America’s most celebrated sports journalists has been Frank Deford, whose unique ability to somehow tell a football or baseball or golf story from an angle no one had seen or thought of before has made him a legend.

Starting out in 1962 in a “Mad Men”-like environment at Sports Illustrated, Deford has since moved on to television and radio, but can still tell a tale like nobody else.

His new memoir “Over Time” is a rich feast of Deford stories — his own, as well as those of the people he’s covered — that tells as much about the state of sports journalism and how it’s changed as it does about the sports these men and women cover.
