Horrible news! Rest in peace. My best wishes to her family and bereaved ones, and journalistic gratitude. I did not agree with her politics but she was a strong woman that commanded respect and she got that from me.
From Washington Post:
Gwen Ifill, the anchor of PBS’s “Washington Week,” wrote for some of the country’s premier newspapers — including The Washington Post and the New York Times — before transitioning to broadcast journalism. She began her reporting career in the late 1970s, assertively carving a niche for herself as a political journalist at a time when black journalists and black female reporters, in particular, were rare in newsrooms and rarer still on the city hall beat.
I hope I speak for many for her years of service to the public working for PBS. Her presence will be missed.
