You may have missed it during the holiday season, but Associated Press legend Linda Deutsch called it quits last month after nearly 50 years writing about the biggest and wackiest celebrity trials in Hollywood, and elsewhere.
Linda is a class act and always a great reporter as she chronicled big time court events from Charles Manson to Michael Jackson.
She also gets high praise from me as a fellow Elvis fan.
We got to know each other during my time at Editor & Publisher. I was lucky to profile her back in 2007 for a story that also included my one phone interview with O.J. Simpson, who had always said she was the only fair reporter at his murder trial.
Linda said she will finally write the long-awaited memoir. I will be first in line to get a copy.
Good luck Linda!
