Vinyl360 Speaker Spotlight: Amy Walter

Aug 2016

As the fall election season heats up, Vinyl360 welcomes Cook Political Report national editor Amy Walter to give us her informed assessment of the 2016 presidential and congressional campaigns. This is an insider perspective you won’t want to miss.

Walter is a frequently quoted congressional election expert with a reputation as an insightful political analyst. Prior to joining the Cook Political Report, she was the political director at ABC News. While there, she oversaw the organization’s political coverage, including the daily political tip sheet The Note. In addition, she co-hosted 2012 election night coverage for the Yahoo!-ABC News Network with Good Morning America weekend anchor Dan Harris. The duo also anchored the livestreamed coverage for the presidential and vice presidential debates.

Walter has been named one of the “Top 50 Journalists” by Washingtonian magazine and has won the Washington Post’s Crystal Ball Award for her spot-on election predictions. Charlie Cook, editor and publisher of the Cook Political Report, has called Walter’s work “trusted and respected by Democrats and Republicans alike. She knows how to get beyond bluster and spin to
unearth – and explain – what really matters in a political arena.”
