Ann Compton

Legendary ABC News' White House Correspondent (1973-2014)

A distinguished and highly respected veteran of the White House press corps, Ann Compton offers audiences a historical perspective of the presidency, the biggest stories of our time and today’s event making headlines.

Exclusively WSB
Inside the White House and Current Events

When the President of the United States went to work, so did Ann Compton. The veteran ABC White House correspondent’s job was to trace the president’s every step to get the stories her audiences want—and need—to hear. Taking her cue from today’s political headlines, Compton provides audiences with something they rarely get: a glimpse of what actually goes in the West Wing, the behind-the-scenes power struggle of a hot news cycle, as well as how controversies are handled, spun and reported. Tailoring her presentation to meet the audiences’ interests, Compton draws upon her legendary career sharing her observations about current events and a look at the people shaping the future. Compton declares a “White House News Conference” is in session and invites her audience to pepper her with questions.

Up Close and Very Personal

Ann Compton, former ABC News’ White House Correspondent, takes listeners on a journey through recent history: revealing the lives and experience of the seven presidents she’s covered through anecdotes, documents and off-the-record conversations. Drawing back the curtains to reveal the personalities of many members of the First Family, Compton shares the poignant and candid moments that historians—and most reporters—don’t get to see. Compton’s program is perfect for luncheons, breakfast and receptions, and is especially ideal for younger audiences.
