On the night of the annual White House Correspondents’ dinner, longtime Washington political journalist Bob Kemper succumbed to an apparent heart attack. He was 53.
Kemper served as an assistant managing editor for the Washington Examiner, and prior to that, reported on Washington and the White House for the Atlanta Journal-Constitution and the Chicago Tribune.
According to a piece remembering the journalist on WashingtonExaminer.com, “He was one of the few journalists allowed to spend much of Sept. 12, 2001, with President George W. Bush, and he later authored a book on the aftermath of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, Rubble: How the 9/11 Families Rebuilt Their Lives and Inspired America.”
