Additionally, in 1997, Broder was named among the 25 most influential Washington journalists by National Journal. His numerous awards include the National Society of Newspaper Columnists Lifetime Achievement Award, the Fourth Estate Award from the National Press Foundation and the White Burkett Miller Presidential Award.

Broder, who appears regularly on CNN's "Inside Politics" and NBC's "Meet the Press" and "Washington Week in Review," has covered every national campaign and convention since 1960. He is author or co-author of seven books, including "Democracy Derailed: Initiative Campaigns and the Power of Money."

Before joining the Post in 1966, Broder covered politics for The New York Times, The Washington Star and Congressional Quarterly.
