Margaret Warner

Television News Journalist


Margaret Warner is one of The NewsHour's three Washington-based senior correspondents who interview newsmakers, policymakers and opinion leaders on the nightly news show. Those discussions run the gamut from foreign policy to domestic politics, Congress and the White House, legal affairs, sciences, health and the arts. She also serves as a backup anchor to Jim Lehrer and occasionally reports from the field.

Warner joined The NewsHour in 1993 with a broad background in print journalism. She has spent ten years at Newsweek magazine, holding the positions of political correspondent in several presidential campaigns; White House correspondent during the Reagan presidency; and chief diplomatic correspondent during the first Bush presidency. During this time, she was also a regular panelist on two television commentary shows, CNN's The Capital Gang, and PBS's Washington Week in Review.

Before Newsweek, she covered regulatory, congressional and business issues for The Wall Street Journal. Previously, she had covered everything from statehouse politics to murder trials for The San Diego Union in California and The Concord Monitor in New Hampshire.

Warner's reporting has been recognized with numerous awards. Her diplomatic coverage during the Gulf War made her runner-up for the National Press Club's 1990 Edwin M. Hood Award for Diplomatic Reporting. She also shared, with other Newsweek reporters and editors, the prestigious George Polk Award for coverage of terrorism and the Best Reporting Award from the Overseas Press Club. Most recently, during the 2000 presidential campaign, she won two Hess-one for a tape piece and studio debate on the surplus as an issue in the campaign, the other for her field-reported piece on the Bush-Gore battle for the State of Florida.

Warner is a graduate of Yale University.
