Award-Winning Broadcaster and Journalist

Josh Levs

Joshua Levs is an award-winning broadcaster, investigative journalist, and expert on issues facing modern families. Named to the Financial Times’s top 10 list of male feminists, Levs fought his employer, Time Warner, after he was denied parental leave when his child was born prematurely. His legal—and very public—victory led to a radical change in corporate policy. Since then, Levs has emerged as a leading voice and advocate for fathers in America, combating negative stereotypes of dads. Known to millions for his work on TV, radio, and online over 20 years of reporting for NPR and CNN, Levs has collected many of the highest honors in his field, including five Peabody Awards and two Edward R. Murrow Awards. He is also the author of the book All In: How Our Work-First Culture Fails Dads, Families, And Businesses—And How We Can Fix It Together, detailing how and why the best family-friendly programs benefit businesses and the economy.
