Bob Woodward

Pulitzer Prize-Winning Investigative Journalist

Named one of the best investigative reporters in America by the New York Times, Bob Woodward is the assistant managing editor of The Washington Post. He first rose to prominence in American journalism when he teamed with Carl Bernstein at the Post to investigate the burglary at the Watergate office building. The Post was awarded the Pulitzer Prize in 1973 for their reporting of the Watergate scandal in the Nixon administration.

Woodward is the only contemporary American writer to author or co-author 11 #1 best-selling non-fiction books. These books include: All the President’s Men and The Final Days, both co-authored with Carl Bernstein; and The Brethren: Inside the Supreme Court, co-authored with former staff writer Scott Armstrong. Other books include Wired: The Short Life and Fast Times of John Belushi, a book about comedian John Belushi and drugs in Hollywood; Veil: The Secret Wars of the CIA; The Commanders; The Man Who Would Be President: Dan Quayle; and The Agenda: Inside The Clinton White House. In 1996, Woodward gave us one of the first inside accounts of the presidential campaigns of President Clinton and Senator Bob Dole in The Choice. He has followed with best-selling books on the George W. Bush and Barack Obama administrations, particularly on their foreign policies and wars.

Woodward joined The Washington Post in 1971 from the Montgomery County, Maryland, Sentinel, where he had been a reporter. In 1979, Woodward became assistant managing editor of Metropolitan News before assuming his current position in 1982. Previously, he served as a communications officer in the U.S. Navy.

A native of Wheaten, Illinois, Woodward received his bachelor’s degree in English and history from Yale University in 1965.
