White House Correspondent And NPC Member Connie Lawn Discusses Her New Autobiography

She's the longest serving White House reporter, having covered that beat for nearly a half-century. And now National Press Club member Connie Lawn has published a new autobiography, "You Wake Me Each Morning: The Final Chapter." Lawn talks about the book and her distinguished career with veteran Press Club member Irv Chapman in this edition of Update-1, the National Press Club's podcast. Lawn talks about the time she met Nelson Mandela and he told her he listened to her radio reports while in prison. She also discusses the changes in White House coverage over the years and what life is like as a freelance journalist.
