Bob Keeler wrote the book on Newsday, a candid history detailing the origin story of Long Island's original tabloid. On this episode we discuss that history, including the relationship of Alicia Patterson and Harry Guggenheim, the rollicking newsroom of the '50s and '60s, and more.


Bob also relates his own history at the paper, including his atypical Pulitzer Prize and his trip to see the Pope.
