The White House News Photographers Association is thrilled to announce that Julie Mason will be the emcee of our 2016 ‘Eyes of History’ awards gala on June 18. Julie is the host of the Press Pool on Sirius XM’s POTUS channel 124, heard weekdays from 3-6 ET. Prior to joining Sirius XM in 2011, she was a White House correspondent for POLITICO. In 10 years as a White House correspondent, Julie traveled the world with two presidents and has written extensively about foreign affairs. She covered four presidential campaigns and more debates and conventions than should be legal. In 2009, Julie was elected by the White House press corps to serve as an at-large member of the White House Correspondents Association board, where she pushed for better press access at the White House. She also led a successful campaign to reverse a policy restricting the distribution of White House pool reports. Julie is a frequent guest on television and radio and has appeared on NBC Nightly News, ABC’s Nightline, MSNBC, the CBS Early Show, CNN, NPR and more.
