Two prominent Washington D.C. journalists, Al Hunt and Judy Woodruff, will speak at Wake Forest at 6 p.m. April 13 in Wait Chapel as part of the University’s Voices of Our Time series.

The event, “The Real Inside Couple of D.C.,” will feature Wake Forest President Nathan O. Hatch posing questions to Hunt and Woodruff. Married in 1980, the two journalists are expected to discuss the intertwining of political, cultural and journalistic life in Washington and share insights on raising a family in the nation’s capital.

Topics will range from the role of social media in American politics and journalism to the future of National Public Radio and public television to parenting tips on work-life balance.

It is free and open to the public.

Hunt is Executive Washington Editor of Bloomberg News and a frequent panelist on network news programs.  He also serves on Wake Forest’s Board of Trustees.  Woodruff is senior correspondent and co-anchor for “The PBS NewsHour” and anchor of “Conversations with Judy Woodruff” on Bloomberg Television.

Voices of Our Time is an annual guest speaker series that exposes students, the Wake Forest community and the general public to some of the world’s leading thinkers — including scholars, scientists, writers, business and public policy leaders, activists and religious leaders — for discussions on the important national and international issues of our time.  It was established in 2006 by Wake Forest President Nathan O. Hatch.
