Up To Date

In The Trenches Of The White House Press Corps

You’re in Washington, and you’ve got the plum assignment—covering the White House. You might get to ride on Air Force One and travel the world with the president, but is it really as glamorous as it sounds?

On Monday's Up to Date, we talk with NPR’s Tamara Keith and Bloomberg’s Margaret Talev about their experiences as White House correspondents. We discuss the challenges and the excitement of reporting on the president, and what it’s like to be in that briefing room.

Guests:

  • Tamara Keith, NPR White House Correspondent, focusing on the economy and the federal budget.
  • Margaret Talev, White House correspondent for Bloomberg.

HEAR MORE: Margaret Talev speaks at 5:30 p.m., April 9 at the Bloch School of Management at the University of Missouri-Kansas City. Click here for more information.

When I host Up To Date each morning at 9 a.m., my aim is to engage the community in conversations about the Kansas City area’s challenges, hopes and opportunities. I try to ask the questions that listeners want answered about the day’s most pressing issues and provide a place for residents to engage directly with newsmakers. My email is steve@kcur.org.
