SUSAN PAGE - BIOGRAPHY

Susan Page, the Washington bureau chief of USA TODAY, is widely considered one of the great political reporters of our era.  She has covered the White House and national politics for decades, has interviewed nine presidents and covered ten presidential campaigns. During a career spanning more than three decades, Susan has reported from six continents and dozens of countries and interviewed newsmakers from physicist Stephen Hawking to Jordan’s King Abdullah II, from actual secretaries of State Madeleine Albright and Henry Kissinger to TV secretary of State Tea Leoni.

Sought out to share her expertise and insight, Susan regularly appears as an analyst on programs and networks including the PBS NewsHour, Face the Nation, Fox News Sunday, CBS This Morning, NPR, CNN, MSNBC and Fox News. In 2016 she ranked among the top ten guests on the Sunday morning shows. [Senator Bernie Sanders took the top spot; President Donald Trump ranked as second.]  Susan also was often the guest host of NPR’s Diane Rehm Show.

In addition to being selected as the recipient of the American News Women’s Club’s 2017 Excellence in Journalism Award, Susan has received all three awards given specifically for coverage of the White House. She twice was awarded the Gerald R. Ford Prize for Distinguished Reporting on the Presidency and the White House Correspondents Association’s Merriman Smith Memorial Award for Deadline Reporting on the Presidency and Aldo Beckman Award for coverage of the presidency. In 2016, CQ/Roll Call presented her with its Lifetime Achievement Award.

Susan has served as president of the White House Correspondents Association and the Gridiron Club, the oldest association of journalists in Washington. She was the first woman to serve as music chairman for the Gridiron Club’s annual satiric show. She was chair of the Robert F. Kennedy Journalism Awards and a juror for the Pulitzer Prizes. She serves on the U.S. Attorney General’s media advisory group.

A native of Wichita, Kansas, she received a bachelor’s degree from Northwestern University and a master’s degree from Columbia University, where she was awarded a Pulitzer Fellowship.
