Guest Speaker for the 2012 Annual Mixer:
Linda Fantin, Director of Network Journalism and Innovation, American Public Media
Linda Fantin is American Public Media’s Director of Network Journalism and Innovation. She leads the Public Insight team, steers the use of Public Insight in APM newsrooms, and oversees Network expansion, sustainability and partner support. Linda has a bachelor’s degree in journalism from the University of Wyoming. She joined APM in 2008 after 18+ years as a watchdog reporter and editor at newspapers in the West. Her devotion to high-impact, deeply sourced journalism was stoked by her experiences covering drug informants gone bad, dietary supplement scams, Olympic corruption and financial aid scandals. But also by the kind of stories that come only from deeply engaging with the community. The funeral of a clown. The death of a theater. An operatic UPS man. Two handy women and a truck named Butch. A summer without Elizabeth Smart. These are the stories that surface every day from the Public Insight Network, stories that embody the science of discovery and the art of explanation.
