A Storyteller’s Diary

by Ann Nyberg


Ann Nyberg is WTNH-TV’s longest-serving Anchor/Reporter in station history. Ann anchors the 6 and 10 o’clock nightly newscasts. She has been a storyteller her entire life, it all started with a diary her mother gave her for Christmas when she was just 8 years old, and the rest is history. In her debut book, Slices of Life, Ann pulls pages from that diary to share with you; reflecting on her childhood, life lessons, and the importance of living each day to the fullest.

Advance Reviews


“A charming personal memoir of a time when life was simpler. Ann Nyberg’s love for her family, friends and life shine through in Slices of Life.”

—Jacques Pepin, French Chef and Bestselling Author

“Historians unearth diaries and journals to tell the real stories of our lives and times. And we understand humanity in a new way. Ann’s book is like that—personal, intimate, reflective and hopeful. It made me want to live next door. Of course, through her work and philanthropy, she is a neighbor to us all, and a very good one at that.”

—Faith Middleton, WNPR, Two-time Peabody award winner, Connecticut Women’s Hall of Fame

“Born of the jottings of her diary, Ann leads us back to her Midwest childhood—evoking the lush textures of a family life that took root in the 1950s—rich in the simple pleasures of playing outside, of making rag dolls, of keeping a diary and handing the tradition down to three daughters. The read is as cozy as settling into one of those naugahyde diner booths that Ann details so vividly.”

—Ivy Baer Sherman, Editor-In-Chief, Vintage Magazine

 “I am in love with Ann Nyberg’s stories. With every vividly painted chapter, I recalled a memory of my own, which I think, is exactly what she planned. Her storytelling triggers the reader to remember the slices of their own lives, the precious moments that sometimes pass too quickly. And, isn’t that what life is really all about. Thank you Ann, for taking me to those cherished times.”

—Kitt Shapiro, only child and devoted daughter to her mother the late actress and singer, Eartha Kitt.

“Ann Nyberg is a knitter. In Slices of Life she knits a warming life narrative of dandelion necklaces, mason jars and the simple pieces of life that prepared her for a heralded storytelling career. Ann’s a daughter, wife, mother and friend who knows the value of a tale well told and she recounts many well in Slices of Life. Just ask Susan the waitress and make sure you’re eating a cookie when you do.”

—Phil Lengyel, Ann’s First News Director in Elkhart, Indiana and former Disney Executive

Slices of Life began at age eight, when the author was given a diary and discovered her true purpose in life: to chronicle events and be a storyteller. …Packed with impressions, sounds, tastes, and scenes…readers who love warm family memories are in for a treat.”
