MSNBC’s Alex Wagner tapped as 2015 Congressional Dinner host
MSNBC host Alex Wagner will emcee the 71st annual Washington Press Club Foundation Congressional Dinner, ITK has learned.
The “NOW With Alex Wagner” host is a former White House correspondent for Politics Daily. She tied the knot with outgoing White House chef Sam Kass earlier this year.
The dinner — scheduled for February 4th of next year at Washington’s Mandarin Oriental Hotel — is considered to be the kick-off to Washington’s social season. A mix of lawmakers, media, and Capitol Hill-types typically attend the fundraiser, while congressional headliners do their best to yuk it up in front of the crowd with comedic remarks.
Past masters of ceremonies have included: CNN’s Brianna Keilar, CBS’ Major Garrett, and MSNBC host Chris Matthews.
