BUFFALO, N.Y. – New York Times White House correspondent and Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Maggie Haberman will speak at the University at Buffalo at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 14, in Center for the Arts, North Campus, as part of UB’s Distinguished Speakers Series.

Maggie Haberman is one of the most influential voices in national affairs journalism today. As a New York Times White House correspondent and CNN political analyst, she has established herself as one of the country’s most respected journalists and reliable resources for expert commentary on current events and national issues. A seasoned veteran of political reporting, she covered City Hall for the New York Daily News, the 2008 U.S. presidential campaign and other political races for the New York Post, as well as national affairs as a senior reporter for Politico.

In 2018, Haberman and fellow New York Times journalists received the Pulitzer Prize in the national reporting category for their coverage of the Trump administration and alleged Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential campaign, and the Aldo Beckman Award from the White House Correspondents’ Association.

During the program, audio and/or video photography, as well as still photography, will be limited to the first five minutes of her lecture.
