Harvey Robert Levin (born September 2, 1950) is an American television producer, lawyer, legal analyst and a celebrity reporter.

Levin received his B.A. in political science from the University of California, Santa Barbara, and his J.D. from the University of Chicago. He passed the bar exam in 1975, and taught at Whittier College School of Law (formerly known as Beverly Rubens School of Law), in Los Angeles, now located in Orange County, between approximately 1977 and 1996.

He later worked in various legal roles in the entertainment industry. For years, he was a legal reporter on KCBS-TV, in Los Angeles, where he reported on the O.J. Simpson murder trial. In 1994, Levin almost caused murder charges against Simpson to be tossed out when he presented a video on KCBS-TV that allegedly showed prosecutor Marcia Clark searching Simpson's home before a search warrant was issued. Within days, however, Levin was forced to retract the story and apologize on the air.

In 1993, Levin investigated the suffering of sick and crippled dairy cows destined for the slaughterhouse using undercover footage provided by Farm Sanctuary.

In 1996, Levin moved to New York to work as a legal analyst for the 1997 revival of The People's Court (he appeared on the show during the 1980s as a legal consultant during Doug Llewelyn's years) and deactivated his California bar license. He became host of the series in 1998 as well as continuing to serve as its legal analyst. Levin served as creator and executive producer for Celebrity Justice from 2002-2005.

Today Levin is a managing editor at, a celebrity news and gossip site launched by Time Warner-AOL in December 2005. He also executive produces and hosts TMZ on TV. He is a frequent guest of the Kevin and Bean show, and CNN's Larry King Live.

Levin lives in Los Angeles with his boyfriend, a chiropractor.[1]
