About Judy Woodruff

Woodruff has been a pioneer for women in broadcast media. She joined NBC in 1975 to work as a general assignment reporter in Atlanta. In 1977, she moved to Washington, D.C., to become an NBC White House correspondent, covering the Carter and Reagan administrations.

Woodruff then moved to PBS, working there from 1983-1993 as the chief Washington correspondent for the MacNeil/Lehrer NewsHour while also anchoring “Frontline with Judy Woodruff” from 1984-1990.

In 1993, she jumped to CNN, where she worked for 12 years, anchoring the program “Inside Politics” and covering major events including Richard Nixon’s funeral and the War in Afghanistan. She returned to the NewsHour in 2007. In 2013, she and the late Gwen Ifill were named the first two women to co-anchor a national broadcast before Ifill’s death in 2016.
