Biography

Linda Winslow was named the executive producer of the NewsHour with Jim Lehrer in November 2005. A key member of the NewsHour management team, Linda's association with Jim Lehrer and Robin MacNeil dates back to her role as producer for the National Public Affairs Center for Television (NPACT). She produced their seminal Watergate coverage in 1973, and also produced PBS's live coverage of the House Judiciary Committee's Presidential Impeachment hearings, which was anchored by Jim. Linda was one of the original producers of the half-hour MacNeil/Lehrer Report from 1975 to 1978, and she rejoined the program as the deputy executive producer in 1983 to facilitate its transition to a one-hour format.

From 1978 to 1983, Linda was vice president in charge of news and public affairs for WETA-26/Washington, D.C., where she was responsible for PBS coverage of Washington's major news events, as well as for the weekly series Washington Week in Review and The Lawmakers.

Linda graduated with high honors in English from Michigan State University and received her Master of Science degree in journalism from Columbia University.
