On Thursday, May 12, PBS NewsHour anchor and managing editor Judy Woodruff joined the University of Virginia’s Miller Center Director and CEO William Antholis in the University’s inaugural James C. Lehrer Lecture—named in honor of the late Jim Lehrer, PBS NewsHour’s co-founder and former anchor. Woodruff discussed Lehrer’s legacy of journalistic integrity, her approach to reporting and how she’s led her news team through the major crises of the past several years: the COVID-19 pandemic, related economic turmoil, the January 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol, and the devastating war in Ukraine and its widespread geopolitical ramifications.
