WASHINGTON – As the coronavirus has taken a horrible toll on our nation and the world, members of the White House Correspondents’ Association have been committed to informing the American public and holding public officials accountable.
The WHCA has also been working to protect the health of our members and preserve our ability to continue to cover the White House during this crisis.
While our hearts are heavy for those that have been lost and for those still suffering during this ongoing crisis, we are hopeful for the day when we can all resume normal life.
After consulting with public health and medical officials, the WHCA looks forward to honoring the first amendment and the important work of the journalists at our annual dinner on Saturday, August 29, 2020.
“For most of us, the COVID-19 pandemic has been the most important story of our lifetimes,” said Jonathan Karl, president of the White House Correspondents’ Association. “We hope our rescheduled 2020 dinner will be a chance to celebrate the kind the important journalism we have seen throughout this crisis.”
We are pleased that our host, host Kenan Thompson, and featured entertainer, Hasan Minhaj, can accommodate this rescheduled date. Bob Bain Productions will partner with the WHCA on producing the dinner.
The WHCA will remain in close contact with the relevant professionals and will provide additional updates on the dinner as necessary.
