Brittany Levine is a digital and written storyteller that has an affinity for data reporting, covering multi-cultural communities and interpreting legalese. She can write stories on a tight deadline and produce, shoot and edit online video.
She currently works for Times Community News, covering the politics, money and influence of Glendale City Hall. Her stories appear in the Los Angeles Times and its community insert, the Glendale News-Press.
She has written both news and enterprise stories for such publications as USA Today, Orange County Register and the Miami Herald. She also has experience in breaking news, political, business and general assignment reporting.
Her political reporting spans both national and local media. She covered congressional news for several media organizations, including the Palm Beach Post, Atlanta Journal-Constitution and Orange County Register. In 2008, she blogged for and helped produce the Washington Post’s Inauguration Watch blog, which covered all aspects of President Barack Obama’s first inauguration.
Her business reporting training stems from her time as a Dow Jones Newspaper Fund fellow in 2009. During her fellowship, she covered Toronto’s stock index and health-care, metals and cleantech stocks for MarketWatch, a digital arm of Dow Jones.
Brittany also speaks fluent Spanish. She used her language skills often while reporting for the Miami Herald.
She graduated in May 2009 with a bachelor’s in journalism and minors in economics and Spanish literature from The George Washington University.
