Woodruff Retirement Official

judylastshow3.jpgYou know Judy Woodruff has officially retired when you read this: She’s going to be taken the nearly obligatory victory lap of a successful Washington career by serving as a visiting fellow at Harvard’s Shorenstein Center for Press, Politics, and Public Policy.

Depending on whether you like students and the laid-back world of academia, the visiting fellowship can actually be better than the resident fellowship: You jet into town a few times, lecture, and then only come back for the parties. Her study group will focus on “contemporary issues in journalism,” which sounds to us very much like “Random stories and anecdotes from my career.”
