Candy Crowley Roasted, Toasted at DC Awards Dinner

Candy Crowley is the 2012 winner of the American News Women’s Club Award for Excellence in Journalism, and the CNN anchor was roasted and toasted at a celebration dinner held at the National Press Club last night. The Hill has details on Dana Bash‘s speech:

The D.C.-based journo kept the wisecracks coming in her remarks, razzing Crowley for her increased presence in the anchor chair: “I’m here to report that some of the Candy-ism’s those of us who have worked with her for years have come to know and love, have suddenly changed. Well, maybe not suddenly — gradually — since, well let’s see when was it, oh — I know — the day you became an anchor.”

Bash continued, “That’s right — the woman who was content with a Diet Coke out of a vending machine to give her a kick start will now only drink — get this — ‘triple grande extra dry soy cappuccino.’”

The AP’s Kimberly Dozier emceed the event. Other roasters and toasters included Bill Richardson, Judy Woodruff, and Molly Boyle. Written notes were sent in from Mark Knoller, Nancy Pelosi, Eleanor Clift and Wolf Blitzer.

“Mr. Wolf” responded bashfully, “Thank you very much, but I don’t think it’s true.”
