Ed Henry Circa 1996

Here’s CNN’s outgoing Senior White House Correspondent Ed Henry in his first appearance on C-SPAN’s Washington Journal from 1996. At the time, he worked for Roll Call as the publication’s HOH writer. In the segment, we learn Ed Henry is from Deer Park, New York  — no, not home to the water company. “Everybody asks me that,” he tells the host, who calls his then-publication “Roll Call Magazine.”

UPDATE: The C-SPAN host who interviewed Henry for this segment was J.J. Green, who is now a National Security Correspondent at WTOP.

WTOP Reels in Slew of Awards

WTOP received five awards over the weekend by the Virginia Associated Press Broadcasters, including the best website award for wtop.com.  During a Saturday luncheon, the station received four top level awards in the Superior class and one Meritorious Award.

WTOP’s National Security Correspondent J.J. Green was honored with the Douglas Southall Freeman Award for Public Service through Journalism for his series titled “Dignity Denied.”  Political Analyst Mark Plotkin was recognized for his editorial work with the “Mark Plotkin Commentary.”  Reporter Brennan Haselton was awarded best in the Feature/Human Interest category for “Whiskey! Huzzah!” and Michelle Basch in the same category for “Jailhouse Rock!.”

Jim Farley, V.P. of News and Programming, said in a release: “The entire newsroom works incredibly hard and they work amazingly well together.  It’s great to see them get the recognition from their peers.”
