15th Edward R. Murrow Forum on Issues in Journalism: Abby Phillip 

Monday, April 3 | 12:00 PM ET | Distler Performance Hall, Granoff Music Center

Join a behind-the-scenes conversation with journalist and CNN news anchor, Abby Phillip, for the first in-person Murrow Forum in four years! Phillip is CNN's senior political correspondent and anchor of "Inside Politics Sunday", an hour-long in-depth show on the week's most important political storylines. Phillip joined CNN in 2017 to cover the Trump Administration, serving as White House Correspondent until 2019. In January 2020, she moderated CNN's Democratic Presidential Debate in Iowa, and later that year, she also anchored special coverage of 2020's Election Night in America, which lasted several days until CNN was the first news outlet to project Joe Biden as the winner. Phillip was national political reporter at The Washington Post, a digital reporter at ABC News, and covered the Obama Administration, campaign finance and lobbying for POLITICO. She was named to the Time 100 Next list in 2021 and was the recipient of the prestigious National Urban League's Women of Power award. Phillip currently lives in Washington with her husband, daughter and their pup Booker T.

This event is sponsored by Tisch College’s Solomont Speaker Series with support from the Political Science Department, the Film & Media Studies Program, Tufts ACTION, the Africana Center, the Tufts Archival Research Center and the Murrow Center for a Digital World at the Fletcher School.
