Ranny Levy



The invasive impact of media on children became the impetus, in 1991, for Levy to create KIDS FIRST! / Coalition for Quality Children's Media, dedicated to promoting and nurturing quality children's media as a vehicle for social change. A former educator, Levy designed an award-winning television series, Kidnetics, for PBS Affiliate, WNIT-TV, produced an ACE-nominated television show (Cable Magazine), and managed an independent film production and distribution company, OneWest Media, selling to national and international markets including PBS, the Discovery Channel and Showtime.

For KIDS FIRST, Levy developed programs such as, KIDS FIRST! Film Critics - a national program for kids ages 7 to 16, KIDS FIRST! Endorsements - evaluation and reviews of media products, KIDS FIRST! Jury and media literacy training.

Ranny has also written two books, The New York Times / KIDS FIRST Guide to The Best Children's Videos and A Parent's Guide to the Best Children's Videos, DVDs and CD-ROMs, is a frequent speaker at conferences, and absolutely LOVES dance.
