Judy Woodruff is shown here in 2007 during a taping of "Meet the Press." At the time, she was senior correspondent with PBS's "The NewsHour with Jim Lehrer."

For five decades, esteemed journalist Judy Woodruff has covered politics, along with other news, at NBC, CNN and PBS.

She’s covered every presidential election and convention since 1976 and moderated presidential debates. Woodruff is now managing editor and anchor of the PBS NewsHour. And she’s won too many awards to list.

On April 7, the Connecticut Foundation for Open Government honored Woodruff with the organization’s Walter Cronkite Award. WNPR's Lori Mack spoke with Woodruff ahead of the awards ceremony about her experience and observations covering American politics.
