Swinging times were had at last night’s 63rd Annual Radio & Television Correspondents’ Association Dinner at the Washington Hilton. The 2,000+ audience dined on New Orleans Cajun Salad, Texas Rubbed Tenderloin of Beef and Mississippi Mud Pile, while washing it down with Stone Cellars Chardonnay and Stone Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon.
The evening’s entertainment is already taking the Internet by storm (and only Karl Rove could overshadow Brian Williams’ impressive sound effects). Ricky Skaggs cancelled at the last minute because he was sick.
NBC’s Lisa Myers took home the Joan Barone Award for her investigative work and Steve Centanni and Olaf Wiig won the David Bloom Award (which was presented by last year’s winner, Bob Woodruff, and David Bloom’s three daughters).
Lots of photos (mostly from FOX’s impressive pre-party) when you click below…
FishbowlDC has heard that Middle East correspondent Jennifer Griffin is moving to Washington permanently. She played a big role in the release of Steve Centanni and Olaf Wiig.
And who, if anyone, will replace Kim Hume? Right now, Bruce Becker is in charge…will anyone else get it (did Brian Wilson want it?)
(UPDATE: This item has been edited to update Griffin’s title)
