Maggie HabermanThe La Follette School of Public Affairs welcomes award-winning reporter Maggie Haberman on Thursday, Oct. 29 for Politics and Policy, an hour-long livestreamed event as UW–Madison’s Public Affairs Journalist in Residence.

Haberman will share her insights as one of the most well-known reporters covering President Trump. The event is free, but registration is required for access.

Haberman is a White House correspondent who joined The Times in 2015. Previously, she was a reporter at Politico, The New York Post, and The New York Daily News.

In 2018, Haberman was among a team of New York Times and Washington Post reporters whose work received a Pulitzer Prize for reporting on Donald Trump's advisers and their connections to Russia. The Pulitzer Prize Board honored the nine reporters “for deeply sourced, relentlessly reported coverage in the public interest that dramatically furthered the nation’s understanding of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and its connections to the Trump campaign, the President-elect’s transition team and his eventual administration.”

Her contributions included “Trump Admitted Dismissal At F.B.I. Eased Pressure” (May 20, 2017) and “Trump’s Son Heard of Link To Moscow Before Meeting” (July 11, 2017).

Haberman also earned the Aldo Beckman Memorial Award from the White House Correspondents’ Association and the Front Page Award for Journalist of the Year from the Newswomen’s Club of New York. She was a finalist for the Mirror Awards, with Glenn Thrush, for the 2014 profile "What Is Hillary Clinton Afraid Of?"

Known as one of the reporters President Trump talks to the most, media outlets have called Haberman the “Trump whisperer.”
