ABC News Anchor Bob Woodruff is this year’s keynote speaker for the Wisconsin Veterans Museum’s Annual Gala on Thursday, April 16. CALS is a co-sponsor of the event.
Woodruff joined ABC News in 1996 and has covered major stories throughout the country and around the world for the network. He was named co-anchor of ABC’s “World News Tonight” in December 2005. On January 29, 2006, while reporting on U.S. and Iraqi security forces, he was seriously injured by a roadside bomb that struck his vehicle near Taji, Iraq.
In February 2007, Woodruff returned to ABC News with his first on-air report, “To Iraq and Back: Bob Woodruff Reports.” He continues to cover traumatic brain injuries for all ABC News broadcasts and platforms and was honored with a Peabody Award in 2008 for his reporting on the subject.
