Broadcast journalist Judy Woodruff is the senior correspondent for the PBS NewsHour, after serving for 11 years as its anchor and managing editor. During 2023 and 2024, she is undertaking a reporting project, "America at a Crossroads," to better understand the country's political divide. She has covered politics and other news for more than four decades at CNN, NBC, and PBS.

The recipient of numerous awards, including the Peabody Journalistic Integrity Award, the Poynter Medal, an Emmy for Lifetime Achievement, and the Radcliffe Medal, she and the late Gwen Ifill were together awarded Arizona Sate University's Walter Cronkite Award for Excellence in Journalism after Woodruff and Ifill were named co-anchors by the PBS NewsHour in 2013, marking the first time an American national news broadcast would be co-anchored by two women.
