He has spent more than 10 years at CNN, reporting across all platforms and networks, helping cover virtually every major story. His work explaining complex issues and fact checking all sorts of claims has earned him the nicknames "truth seeker in chief" and "Mr. Reality" on air. And the breadth of his stories and interests earned him another moniker: "senior everything correspondent." An outspoken father, Levs reports and writes columns about modern parenthood. He has brought together fellow dads for some of the most frank discussions ever seen on television. He reported and wrote about delivering his own son, unplanned, when his wife skipped labor and gave birth in their bedroom. He covers issues facing fathers for HLN’s “Raising America.”
On Oct. 30, 2013 he posted online that he had filed an EEOC complaint against Time Warner over its family leave policy. He claims that under Time Warner rules, all parents of new children have the option of 10 paid weeks off — except biological fathers.
He received his undergraduate degree from Yale University, where he was elected president of his United Synagogue Youth chapter and where a scholarship was established in his name. He later reported for NPR for over 10 years.
