DC’s radio legend Diane Rehm celebrated a 30th anniversary in style last evening at the Andrew M. Mellon Auditorium. Former CBS newsman Roger Mudd served as the master of ceremonies and friends and colleagues gave speeches to commemorate this milestone.
NPR’s Scott Simon and Susan Stamberg, PBS’ Gwen Ifill and Jim Lehrer, Bloomberg’s Margaret Carlson, WaPo‘s David Ignatius and Mother Jones’ David Corn, as well as Rep. John Dingell (D-MI) and Reps. Jane Harman (D-CA), were all in attendance.
“I have a wonderful job… It’s the best job in the whole world,” Rehm was quoted today in the Post.
