Ann ComptonAnn Compton Honored Keynote 2018 ICMG Annual Conference

Ann Compton’s career at ABC News spanned seven presidents and 10 presidential campaigns. Assigned to the White House in 1974, she reported for ABC News broadcasts from Washington and around the globe, traveling with presidents, vice presidents, and first ladies. Ms. Compton is known as a pioneer.

As the first woman assigned to cover the White House on network television and with more than 40 years on the air for ABC News, her longevity and impact are significant. After retiring from daily coverage in 2014, Ms. Compton reignited her career by returning to ABC to cover the 2016 political conventions, as well as accepting a fellowship at Harvard's Kennedy School of Government focusing on media coverage of the 2016 election. She now combines her personal experiences on the White House beat with fresh scholarship from the prestigious Miller Center for presidential studies in Virginia.


Her other professional awards and honors are substantial. Ms. Compton’s colleagues elected her president of the White House Correspondents’ Association for 2007-2008. She was chair of the Radio-Television Correspondents’ Association on Capitol Hill in 1987-1988. The Commission on Presidential Debates selected her to serve as a debate panelist in 1988 and 1992. Additionally, she has been inducted into six halls of fame and has received five honorary university degrees.
