STATEMENT FROM REV. AL SHARPTON ON THE PASSING OF GWEN IFILL

 

New York, NY (Monday, November 14, 2016)  – “I am deeply saddened by the loss of Gwen Ifill, a standout journalist and internationally respected news veteran. As the first woman of color to co-host a nightly newscast with PBS NewsHour, she was a media giant who was smart, sensitive, and always a class act. Her exceptional deliverance of the news will be missed greatly and her reporting on issues that mattered to millions will be remembered for years to come.”
