AP Vet Linda Deutsch to Retire

Linda Deutsch, a 48 year veteran of the Associated Press, is retiring. During her tenure, the courts reporter covered countless iconic news stories, such as Charles Manson’s murder conviction, the trial of the Exxon Valdez captain, and O.J. Simpson’s acquittal.

Deutsch was not only a respected reporter, she was a pioneer. When she joined the AP’s Los Angeles bureau, she was its only female staffer.

“Linda leaves an incredible legacy,” said Traci Carl, the AP’s West editor. “For five decades, she bore witness to some of the most sensational trials in U.S. history. She cherished her role as the public’s eyes and ears at these events, and never wavered in her commitment to accurate and objective reporting.”

The 71-year-old Deutsch plans to write a memoir after retiring.
