Linda Deutsch

Los Angeles, CA
In four decades with The Associated Press, Linda Deutsch has established herself as the nation’s leading expert in coverage of high profile trials. From Manson to O.J. Simpson, Michael Jackson, Phil Spector and many others in between, she has become known for her fair and unbiased coverage. A recent issue of “Current Biography,” summing up her career, said,  “She has been ranked among the foremost American courtroom journalists of modern times….She is best known for her detailed, objective reporting on some of the most sensational, newsworthy and influential trials of recent decades.”  Linda has been the eyes and ears of the public at trials including those of: Sirhan Sirhan, Charles Manson, Patty Hearst, Angela Davis, Daniel Ellsberg, John Z. DeLorean, Exxon Valdez skipper Joseph Hazelwood, and the Menendez Brothers. Last year, she reported on the trial of Dr. Conrad Murray, convicted of involuntary manslaughter in Michael Jackson’s death. Linda has been a JAWS camper for more than 20 years and a speaker in many of its programs. She is a former board member. A native of New Jersey and a graduate of Monmouth University, Linda is the recipient of numerous awards including the University of Missouri’s Honor Medal for Distinguished Service in Journalism and the Society of Professional  Journalists national First Amendment Award.  Her high school alma mater recently named her to The Asbury Park High School Hall of Fame. She lives in the Hollywood Hills in California a short way from the Hollywood Sign. A well-known footnote to her biography is her decades-long devotion to Elvis Presley.  She started one of the first Elvis fan clubs in the country when she was 12 years old and started her journalism career by publishing a newsletter about The King which had 300 subscribers in the U.S. and abroad. She has made three pilgrimages to Graceland and has her car radio tuned to Elvis Radio at all times.
