Bob Woodward 2019
The Washington Post
Legendary investigative journalist and author Bob Woodward was honored with the 2019 National Press Foundation’s W.M. Kiplinger Distinguished Contributions to Journalism Award.
NPF judges cited Woodward’s five decades of extraordinary journalism – investigating nine presidents, from Nixon to Trump – and praised him as a relentless shoe-leather reporter who never rested on the laurels heaped upon him.
Bob Woodward is an associate editor of The Washington Post, where he has worked since 1971.
