Hot Off the Presses! Levin Named to Journalism Hall of Fame

Linda Lotridge Levin, a faculty member in the Department of Journalism since 1983 and its chairwoman since 2001, was inducted into the Rhode Island Press Association Hall of Fame.

Levin began her career as a reporter for The Providence Journal. After leaving The Journal, she became an award-winning freelance writer specializing in health, medicine, and travel. She wrote a nationally syndicated health and medicine column, travel stories for magazines and newspapers, and edited two books on Rhode Island history. Her most recent book was a biography of Stephen Early, President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s press secretary.

Levin has spent the last decade writing about First Amendment issues, in particular the area of access to public information.

During her tenure, journalism majors have doubled. A host of URI graduates work at daily and community papers in the state and the region. In addition, a number of journalism alumni report on national and international issues.
