About the author
Brian Stelter is a media reporter for The New York Times. He covers television and digital media for the Business and Arts sections of the newspaper, and is a lead contributor to the Media Decoder blog. In June 2012 he broke the news that Ann Curry was in negotiations with NBC to leave the "Today" show, setting in motion many of the events recounted in Top of the Morning.
In January 2004 Stelter created TVNewser, a blog covering the television news industry. At the time, he was a freshman at Towson University. He sold TVNewser to Mediabistro.com six months later and continued to run it until May 2007, when he graduated from Towson University with a degree in mass communication with a concentration in journalism. He joined The Times two months later.
Stelter appeared in the 2011 documentary “Page One: Inside The New York Times.” He lives in the West Village of Manhattan with his girlfriend Jamie Shupak, the morning traffic anchor on NY1, the all-news cable channel in New York City.
