The Dartmouth Club of Washington DC will present the 30th Annual Daniel Webster Award for Distinguished Public Service to Jacob Paul “Jake” Tapper ’91. Please join us for what is sure to be a lively evening as Jake Tapper receives his award and shares his insights about the state of journalism and politics today. 

Tapper garnered attention during the recent Presidential election cycle for his dogged reporting as well as his skillful moderating of two Republican primary debates. A recent profile in Slate called him a “truth seeker” and “equal opportunity tough interviewer” and he was just recently named a 2017 winner of the Walter Cronkite Award for Excellence in Television Political Journalism for his "fearless advocacy for the truth throughout the election cycle."

Tapper is Chief Washington Correspondent for CNN, anchor of the network’s weekday program, The Lead with Jake Tapper, and host of the CNN Sunday morning public affairs program, State of the Union, which airs both domestically and on CNN International. Click on the title above for more details.
