Former People magazine writer Nicki Weisensee Egan is sharing her firsthand account in her debut book, “Chasing Cosby,” of reporting on the downward spiral of the “Cosby Show” star — the man once thought of as “America’s Dad.”
Egan, who currently writes for various outlets, was one of the first reporters to cover the drugging and molestation claims against 81-year-old Cosby made in 2005 by Andrea Constand.
“Egan doggedly investigated the case, developing ties with entrenched sources and discovering incriminating details that would ultimately come to influence the prosecution,” her rep told us in a statement on Friday.
Constand has testified twice against Cosby, in the first trial last year which was declared a mistrial due to a hung jury and the second where he was convicted on three counts of sexual assault in April. His sentencing is in just a few weeks on September 24.
Published by Seal Press, “Chasing Cosby” is slated for release in April of 2019.
