business news in context, analysis with attitude

Gwen Ifill, a veteran and highly respected Washington journalist who hosted "Washington Week" and co-anchored "PBS NewsHour" on public television, and prior to that covered government and politics for NBC News, the New York Times and the Washington Post, died yesterday after a brief battle with uterine cancer. She was 61.

People she worked with and covered yesterday remembered her not just as a fair and accomplished reporter, but also someone who mentored and advised young journalists throughout her career, especially women and people of color, helping them find their voice in a demanding and often cutthroat industry.
