I’m honored to become the next moderator of @washingtonweek , a show that meant so much to Gwen Ifill when she helmed this chair. My guiding light will be focusing on the impact of politics on everyday people and vulnerable populations. Join me this Friday.

Great news for PBS, ‘Washington Week’ and all of us who so love the show. Gwen Ifill is smiling at the selection of the always-insightful @Yamiche ⁩. She will continue in Gwen’s tradition: hard questions and no raised voices, just good analysis.

We’re LIVE on Instagram! Join @Yamiche  for a preview of tonight's show and a live Q&A with Gwen Ifill fellow @clarrrribel .

Yamiche Alcindor will be the next host of the PBS show “Washington Week,” succeeding Robert Costa. The program is most closely associated with its longtime moderator Gwen Ifill, a pioneering Black journalist who died in 2016.

So well-deserved, so fitting for Gwen Ifill's protege: @Yamiche  Alcindor Is Named Host of ‘Washington Week’ on PBS

NEW: PBS NewsHour's Yamiche Alcindor has been named the new anchor of "Washington Week," following in the footsteps of the show's longtime moderator and her late mentor, Gwen Ifill.

This is the absolute best news and I am elated that @washingtonweek  is back to being led by a fearless Black woman journalist after a relatively short break following the death of Gwen Ifill. Heck yes, @Yamiche !

In our first Washington Mid-Week convo, @ayesharascoe  of @NPR  talks with Gwen Ifill Fellow@clarrrribel  about what post-pandemic recovery will look like for marginalized groups, who were amongst the hardest hit by the pandemic. Watch:

I'm so honored to receive this year's 2020 Gwen Ifill Award from the International Women’s Media Foundation. I miss Gwen's necessary voice this year and I am blessed to have been able to receive her guidance while we had her. I hope we at the @NewsHour  are making her proud.

Gwen Ifill was the first Black woman to moderate a vice-presidential debate, a leader on PBS’ Washington Week in Review, and a trailblazer in journalism. She deserves to be honored this month and every month. #BlackHistoryMonth 

The legendary journalist Gwen Ifill, who died at the age of 61 after battling cancer, will be memorialized on a new U.S. Postal Service Forever stamp. "She is what everybody should aspire to be," said Allison Davis, a founder of the @NABJ .

Props to @HuffingtonPost  for the proper headline on a man who called Gwen Ifill a “cleaning lady,” Rutgers athletes “nappy headed hoes” and Patrick Ewing a “knuckle-dragging moron” while producers made ape noises. Shame on all who ignored this in their coverage.

Here is Gwen Ifill calling out hate speech, again to a table full of men who all try to speak over her.

Gwen Ifill was a trailblazer and a bright light in journalism. She informed and challenged us, and did so with grace. I will miss her.

"She not only informed today's citizens, but she also inspired tomorrow's journalists," @POTUS  says of Gwen Ifill.

It is with heavy hearts that we share that our dear friend and beloved colleague Gwen Ifill has passed away.
