Ever since President Reagan’s skills on camera earned him the name of Great Communicator, a rush of changes in media has upended the way the president communicates and the way White House correspondents cover the beat. Join the Education Team at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation and Institute as a panel of White House reporters, scholars, and historians break down how this relationship works, what it means for our democracy, and how the press corps respond to 5 am Tweets.

Panel of speakers include:
Moderator: Margaret Talev, President, White House Correspondents Association

  • Lou Cannon, Author and Former White House Correspondent, Washington Post
  • John Woolley, Presidential Historian, UC Santa Barbara
  • Jonathan Karl, White House Correspondent, ABC News

This event is co-sponsored by the White House Correspondents’ Association.

This is a free event to attend, but registration is required.
