Watch Washington Week

Washington Week is a weekly show devoted to a civil, in-depth discussion of the week's political news. The show is hosted by Gwen Ifill and sponsored, in part, by National Journal. It is produced by WETA-TV in Washington, D.C. and is broadcast on 90 percent of the nation's PBS stations and the American Forces Radio and TV Network. The show has a 30-minute run time and appears weekly.

The show's format is a roundtable discussion between two to four journalists, at least one of which is from National Journal, moderated by Ifill. The show has a stable of regular and occasional guests. Guests on the show are working journalists employed by magazines and newspapers around the world, including The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal and TIME Magazine.

Washington Week first aired in February 1967 under the name Washington Week in Review. It has been on the air ever since, seeing only minor changes in its over 40-year run. Over the years, it has been nominated for, and received, several awards for journalism including a George Foster Peabody Award for its 2008 election coverage.

The show has been moderated by several different hosts during its run, including John Davenport, Robert MacNeil and Ken Bode. Gwen Ifill had appeared on the show as a guest and occasional guest moderator for years before assuming the role of official moderator in 1999.

In 2006, National Journal became an official partner of the show. The partnership involves the sharing of resources between the two organizations, including access to local news reports and editorial staff. The name, "National Journal," was also added to the title, making the official listing Washington Week in Review with Gwen Ifill and National Journal.
