Post publisher to roast Woodward
Washington Post publisher Katharine Weymouth will pay tribute to Bob Woodward when he receives the Fourth Estate Award Friday, Sept. 21.
She and Donald Graham, CEO and chairman of the Washington Post Co., will roast and toast their long-time colleague.
Through Sept. 14, Club members may buy two tickets for $125 apiece. Non-member tickets are $200 apiece.
Tickets are available here or by calling 202-662-7501.
Woodward is the 40th recipient of the Fourth Estate Award, the National Press Club’s highest honor, given annually to an American journalist for a lifetime of achievement in the field.
The dinner and an accompanying silent auction raise money for the NPC Journalism Institute, the Club’s non-profit arm, which provides professional development and training services to the journalism community as well as scholarships for aspiring journalists.
