Judy Woodruff—one of the world’s most prominent female journalists—brings groundbreaking reporting experience, sharing insights on the Trump Administration, Congress and the changing political landscape.
Through a combination of hard news and political experience, Judy Woodruff became a trusted voice and an admired broadcast journalist. Today, she is anchor and managing editor for the PBS Newshour and she has also contributed to a series of national reports on views of young Americans. Her tested experience and tough-minded journalistic acumen help audiences make political sense of the politically insensible. The former host of CNN’s Inside Politics, Woodruff brings decades of broadcast experience and coverage of eight presidential elections to the table as one of America’s most accomplished political journalists. In addition to her work for PBS, Woodruff also hosts Conversations with Judy Woodruff, a news interview program on Bloomberg Television.
In April of 2017, Arizona State University's Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication announced it would be honoring Woodruff and the late Gwen Ifill with the 2017 Walter Cronkite Award for Excellence in Journalism. When Woodruff and Ifill were announced as co-anchors of the PBS NewsHour in 2013, it marked the first time that an American network broadcast would be co-anchored by two women.
