WHYY’s 2013 President’s Dinner
The President’s Dinner award ceremony takes place at the WHYY’s new Dorrance H. Hamilton Public Media Commons before a live audience, including hundreds of CEOs, business and political leaders, and many of WHYY’s major donors. We’re turning the tables this year and honoring Fresh Air host Terry Gross. Terry will be interviewed on stage by NPR’s Scott Simon. The highlight of the gala is a live interview with Terry Gross, acclaimed host of National Public Radio’s Fresh Air with Terry Gross. Past honorees include Pennsylvania Governor Edward Rendell; former U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security, Tom Ridge; and public broadcast journalists, Robert MacNeil and Jim Lehrer, Cokie Roberts, Charlie Rose, Gwen Ifill; and film director/producer Ken Burns; NPR’s former Morning Edition anchor, Carl Kasell; and PBS’s Tavis Smiley.
