He is the author of the New York Times best-selling book, The Gatekeepers: How the White House chiefs of staff define every presidency. Critically-acclaimed (“If you’re a political junkie or just curious, this is the book for you”—Tom Brokaw), The Gatekeepers, published April 4, 2017 by Crown, is the first in-depth, behind-the-scenes look at the men who have been the president’s closest advisers, whose actions—and inactions—have defined the course of our country.
A multiple Peabody and Emmy Award-winning producer at CBS News 60 Minutes and ABC News PrimeTime, Chris Whipple is the chief executive officer of CCWHIP Productions. He is the writer and executive producer of The Spymasters: CIA in the Crosshairs, airing on Showtime.
