White House reporter April Ryan to speak at Johns Hopkins University

Veteran journalist April Ryan, a tenacious reporter and a fixture on the White House beat, will speak at Johns Hopkins University on Sept. 12 in the first JHU Forums on Race in America event of the 2017-18 academic year.

Ryan, the White House correspondent for American Urban Radio Networks since January 1997, will give her perspective on reporting on the U.S. presidency during a moderated conversation at 7 p.m. in Mudd Hall, room 26. The event, titled "Race, Politics, and the Changing Face of Journalism," will be preceded by a 6 p.m. reception.

"For the Forums on Race, April Ryan will describe what it is like to report from her seat in the White House briefing room and the winding corridors of our country's urban and rural communities," says Tracey Reeves, JHU's director of media relations, who will moderate the conversation. "April will talk about the fast-paced culture of news gathering at a time when the rapidly changing profession seems under siege by a wary public struggling to decipher what is real and what is 'fake' news."
