For more than three decades, Judy Woodruff has been one of the most high-profile American journalists. She was White House and Today Show Chief Washington correspondent for NBC News from 1977 to 1983. For twelve years she was anchor and senior correspondent for CNN, anchoring the network's weekday political program, "Inside Politics."
In two stints with PBS, Woodruff has served as chief Washington correspondent, anchor of the weekly documentary series, "Frontline with Judy Woodruff," and senior correspondent and co-anchor of the PBS NewsHour.
Woodruff was the 2012 recipient of the prestigious Gaylord Prize for excellence in journalism, presented by the Gaylord College of Journalism and Mass Communication at the University of Oklahoma. While in Oklahoma, Woodruff talked to Dick Pryor about her career in journalism and covering politics, less than a week after anchoring the PBS NewsHour coverage of the 2012 presidential election.
