Gwen Ifill is moderator and managing editor of Washington Week and senior correspondent for PBS NewsHour. She frequently moderates debates for national elections, most recently the 2008 vice presidential debate.


Ifill spoke at Marquette about her role as a journalist, the importance of asking tough questions and the challenges she has faced as an African-American woman in journalism.


The Nieman Chair and lecture series is endowed in honor of Lucius W. Nieman, who founded the Milwaukee Journal at age 24 in 1882 and was the paper’s longtime editor-in-chief. Ifill’s visit also was part of the Centennial Celebration of Women at Marquette.
