When Andrea Mitchell was a new reporter at NBC’s Washington Bureau, she found a colleague, mentor and friend in Judy Woodruff, now co-anchor of “PBS NewsHour” with Gwen Ifill.

Andrea reflected on her friend, the ‘unflappable anchor with a huge heart’ and said:

When asked for an example of how “Women Rule,” Judy immediately came to mind. She is a broadcast pioneer, who, through hard work and persistence, broke down barriers for the rest of us, whether on the White House beat, the campaign trail or behind the anchor desk. And despite her extraordinary success on the national stage, she remains rooted in her hometown values. When young women ask me how it’s possible to have it all, I still don’t have a good answer. But I point to Judy Woodruff as the best example of a woman of great character who has succeeded in work and, more importantly, in life.
