SPJ Names Lynn Walsh National President

Walsh, along with two other women, make SPJ history.

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.
