The Society of Professional Journalists has tapped three women to lead it into next year. Lynn Walsh will serve as national president; Rebecca Baker as president-elect and Alex Tarquino as secretary treasurer.
This marks the first time in SPJ’s 107-year history three women have held those roles at the same time.
Walsh serves as an investigative producer for NBC 7 in San Diego. Baker is the managing editor of New York Law Journal. Tarquino is Real Deal’s special issues editor.
