Gwen Ifill Richly Honored With Postal Stamp

October 22, 2019


This news is something that we all can be pleased to learn about it today.  Long-time readers may recall my respect for Gwen Ifill as a journalist, and as a classy woman.

Today those reasons underscore why Ifill will be honored with a postal stamp. The stamp features a 2008 photo of Ifill with the words “BLACK HERITAGE” at the top and Ifill’s name at the bottom.  It is the 43rd stamp in the Black Heritage series and one of several new designs that will be issued next year.

Ifill worked at the NewsHour for 17 years, covering eight presidential campaigns and moderating two vice-presidential debates. She was also the moderator and managing editor of “Washington Week.”

She is really missed in these chaotic times.
