Saturday’s 2024 White House Correspondents’ Dinner will be the final one held during President Joe Biden‘s first term in the White House. The light-hearted— yet formal—event also known as the Nerd Prom brings together political figures, civil and business leaders and journalists under one roof at the Washington Hilton in support of the American free press.

The task of organizing this year’s Nerd Prom fell to current White House Correspondents’ Association president, Kelly O’Donnell. The NBC News senior White House correspondent is the first sitting NBC journalist to serve as WHCA president, and she’ll be in attendance along with top anchors and newsroom leaders from across NBCUniversal News Groups.
