CNN chief media correspondent Brian Stelter has begun a book about Fox News in the age of President Trump, and Trump in the age of Fox.

What we know: The book — no title yet — will be out next year from One Signal, an imprint of Simon and Schuster. The publisher says the book will go "behind the scenes of a TV network and a White House merging in unprecedented fashion."

Backdrop: Stelter will draw on 15 years of reporting, going back to his days running TVNewser, a site he founded in 2004.

  • Stelter's first book — "Top of the Morning," about morning shows — hit the N.Y. Times bestseller list in 2013.
