Judy Woodruff (born November 20, 1946) is an American television news anchor and journalist.

Born in Tulsa, Oklahoma, Woodruff began her career on local Atlanta station WAGA-TV, once a CBS affiliate and now an affiliate of Fox Network. She served as the chief White House correspondent for NBC from 1977 to 1982, and covered Washington for The Today Show from 1982 - 83. She moved from NBC to PBS, and from 1984 to 1990 was the host of Frontline. From 1983 to 1993, she was Chief Washington Correspondent for "The MacNeil/Lehrer News Hour," also on PBS.

From 1993 to June 2005, she was the host of Inside Politics on CNN. She decided not to renew her contract with CNN, looking toward teaching, writing, and working on documentaries. In August 2005, Woodruff was named a visiting fellow for the fall semester at Harvard University's Joan Shorenstein Center on the Press, Politics and Public Policy. She previously taught the course "Media and Politics" at Duke University's Sanford Institute for Public Policy. CNN founder Ted Turner stated in a May 7, 2009 interview on the Diane Rehm Show that he was upset that CNN had let Woodruff go.
