Gwen Ifill was an extraordinary journalist, and someone who I followed for as long as I followed politics. She died too young in 2016 of breast and endometrial cancer. This year she has been honored with a United States Postal Service Forever stamp. You read her author’s page at The PBS Newshour and read some touching memories at Remembering Gwen Ifill. She will always be an inspiration to me.
Gwen Ifill was one of the most respected journalists of our time. I’ve watched her for years, both on NBC and PBS. She was always happy to be where she was and reporting the news. She was a true journalist. I will miss her, especially her insight for the upcoming politcal year.
