About the Author

Jonathan Karl is the chief White House correspondent and chief Washington correspondent for ABC News and the president of the White House Correspondents' Association (2019-2020). He has reported from the White House during the administrations of four presidents and thirteen press secretaries and covered every major beat in Washington, including Capitol Hill, the Pentagon, and the State Department. Karl also has a long history of reporting on Donald Trump, beginning in the early 1990s, when he was a reporter for The New York Post, and including Trump's first network interview of the 2016 presidential campaign cycle. Karl has won numerous awards, including the Walter Cronkite Award for National Individual Achievement and the National Press Foundation's Everett McKinley Dirksen Award, the highest honor for Congressional reporting. According to the Tyndall Report, Karl was the single most used network correspondent for the first two years of the Trump presidency, logging nearly 400 minutes of air time in 2017 on the World News Tonight broadcast alone.


Praise for Front Row at the Trump Show

"Jonathan Karl gives us much more than program notes for The Trump Show in this revealing and personal account of his relationship with our 45th President. We learn what it is really like to be on the White House beat, about the peculiarities of dealing with the personality in the Oval Office, and ultimately the risks and dangers we face at this singular moment in American history."--Mike McCurry, former White House Press Secretary (1995-98), Director/Professor, Center for Public Theology, Wesley Theological Seminary

"The Constitution is strict: It says we must have presidents. Fortunately, we occasionally have reporters as talented as Jonathan Karl--an acute observer and gifted writer--to record what presidents do. Karl is exactly the right journalist to chronicle the 45th president, who is more--to be polite--exotic than his predecessors."--George F. Will "No reporter has covered Donald Trump longer and with more energy than Jonathan Karl. It pays off in his account of what he calls the Trump Show with some startling scoops. What did the president scrawl across the rejected resignation letter from his attorney general? He tells us."--Susan Page, Washington Bureau chief, USA TODAY "Jon Karl is fierce, fearless and fair. From cub reporter at the NY Post to Chief WH Correspondent for ABC News, he's covered Donald Trump--and the White House--for a generation. He knows the man, and the office. Front Row at the Trump Show takes us inside the daily challenge of truthful reporting on the Trump WH, revealing what's at stake with vivid detail and deep insights."--George Stephanopoulos "Jonathan Karl is a straight shooting, fair minded, and hardworking professional so it's no surprise he's produced a book historians will relish. It's about good old fashioned news getting--about the process and the rules and how it works. Overlaying it is this most amazing moment in American political history. Underlying it is a story about waking up each morning and trying against the odds to find out what's true."--Peggy Noonan, The Wall Street Journal "Front Row at the Trump Show provides an unvarnished view of the deceptions, eccentricities and occasional achievements of the Trump presidency from a first-rate television correspondent with a ringside seat."--Lou Cannon, author of President Reagan: The Role of a Lifetime "Must read: Jonathan Karl's Front Row at the Trump Show. Time and again he was in the room where it happened. I've read every book about the Trump presidency. His is the best."--Bill Press "A valuable report from the scene of an ongoing train wreck."--Kirkus Reviews "Front Row at the Trump Show is the best long-form study of the relationship between Trump and the media--and it's not possible to understand the Trump presidency without understanding that relationship."--The Morning Dispatch "[Front Row at the Trump Show] is an attempt to capture the madness that is the Trump presidency and the danger to democracy it poses. Aided by measured prose and healthy skepticism, Karl succeeds. Well-organized and respectfully written before the pandemic, Front Row at the Trump Show conveys the chaos and the characters that inhabit the president's universe."--The Guardian "Karl, the chief White House correspondent at ABC News, has known Donald Trump since 1994, and it shows."--New York Times Book Review "It was so good I was sad when it ended"--Olivia Nuzzi, New York Magazine
