The National Press Club's Legends of Broadcasting series continues with a dinner conversation with long-time Washington television anchor Maureen Bunyan on Thursday, October 5.

With more than 40 years behind the anchor desk at both WUSA and WJLA in Washington and numerous awards and accolades including seven local Emmys, Maureen Bunyan has cemented her place in broadcast history as a trailblazer and a legend in the industry.

A founder of the National Association of Black Journalists and the International Women's Media Foundation, she is also a member of the Order of Orange-Nassau, a Dutch chivalric honor for her educational efforts on behalf of students in the United States and her native Aruba, a Dutch colony in the Caribbean.

This special event, organized by the club's Broadcasting & Podcasting Team, will take place in the Winner's Room in the club's Fourth Estate Restaurant, and will be strictly limited to 30 people. A cash bar reception will begin at 6 p.m. with introductions and dinner following at 6:45. Our guest of honor will make remarks and then open the floor to an informal Q&A session to end by 8:30.

Cost of the three-course dinner is $55 for Club members and members of the public.
