WASHINGTON, July 16, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — Legendary journalists Judy Woodruff and Gwen Ifill, co-anchors of PBS NewsHour’s 2012 election coverage, will analyze the complex issues in play in the run up to the Nov. 6 general election at a National Press Club luncheon on Tuesday, July 24.

Ifill, a senior correspondent at PBS, has moderated two vice-presidential debates.
Lunch will be served at 12:30 p.m. The formal program, which includes a question-and-answer session, begins promptly at 1 p.m. and concludes at 2 p.m. The event will be held in the National Press Club ballroom 13th floor, National Press Building, 529 – 14th Street, NW, Washington, D.C.
