WASHINGTON, March 9, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Following is a statement by Mark Hamrick, President of the National Press Club on David Broder.


"David Broder's work set a high standard in many ways. And he will be missed. While he is being remembered as the 'dean of the Washington press corps' that ultimately is too limiting, because such excellence is not confined by geography or time. To readers, politicians and fellow journalists alike, he demonstrated the necessity of highly skilled political reporting within a robust democracy."

Founded in 1908 the National Press Club is the world's leading professional organization for journalists. David Broder was among its members. His work was recognized by the NPC with the prestigious 4th Estate Award.
