This article profiles Gwen Ifill, a reporter-anchor Monday through Wednesday for "The News Hour," the daily in-depth news reporting program on PBS, and managing editor and moderator of "Washington Week," the widely-respected and watched weekend news and analysis program, also on PBS. With a resume that boasts experience as a reporter for "The Baltimore Sun," "The Washington Post," "The New York Times," and NBC News, the New York City-born Simmons College graduate has emerged in recent years as one of the most respected journalists in the nation. She has done it with class and a trademark style that is a far cry from the direction in which more and more news and entertainment programs have gone to draw viewers. In what one colleague characterized as a throwback to journalism that preceded much of what is touted today as journalism, Ifill effectively holds court with colleagues who do not go for the drama or shock treatment of their viewers.
