Here is Washington, DC tomorrow, the Newseum rededicates its Journalists Memorial, “honoring newspeople who died or were killed in the pursuit of news.” The Newseum will add the names of 88 journalists who died while on assignment in 2009 and six from previous years whose deaths were brought to the Newseum’s attention in 2009.

ABC’s Christiane Amanpour will be the keynote speaker. In August, Amanpour will call the Newseum home, at least on Sundays as she begins hosting “This Week” which broadcasts from the museum.
