Christy Slewinski

Managing Editor
Our TVWW managing editor, Christy Slewinski, passed away August 23rd, 2013, suddenly and unexpectedly. Earlier in her career, Christy covered the TV beat at the Tribune-Review and the New York Daily News, and also served as the lifestyles/specialty sections editor at the Orlando Sentinel. She also oversaw social media management and Internet projects for various clients nationwide.

She was as great a friend as she was an editor, and she was a terrific editor.

We still grieve the news, and the loss. To her family, whose losses are infinitely greater, our TVWW love and sympathy.
