TV news anchor and reporter Courtney Friel has been sober for over a decade, and she’s telling her story in a new book as well as here on Breakfast All Day A La Carte. Courtney discusses getting drunk for the first time at 15, beginning her cocaine use in college, finally going to rehab and how she stays sober, even through some of the hardest times of her life. She also discusses her career in television news which included several years at “Fox News Channel” (and we do talk about “Bombshell”) and her work here at KTLA. Her new book, “Tonight at 10: Kicking Booze and Breaking News,” chronicles her struggles with substance abuse and the current joys of her alcohol-free life. She also has a podcast of her own, “Keepin’ It Friel: Conversations on Recovery,” where she talks to her friends about their addiction and sobriety. Christy is so grateful to Courtney for sharing her story — hopefully, you'll find it beneficial, as well.
