The Radio-Television Congressional Correspondents’ Dinner After Party Wednesday night has a brand new host this year: the National Cable and Telecommunications Association. The new incoming president is former FCC Chairman Michael Powell.
The After Party, hosted by other networks in years past, will be held immediately following the dinner at the Convention Center. Last year BBC hosted the after party across the street. The year before, MSNBC held a blowout event co-sponsored by Starbucks. There was an ice cream bar, dancing, and MSNBC host Rachel Maddow tending bar.
To any confused souls out there, the dinner was previously called the Radio-Television Correspondents’ Dinner but was renamed to “better reflect” its members.
