After a private battle with cancer, long-time journalist and newscaster, Gwen Ifill (61) passed away today in the care of hospice, according to The New York Post.

Ifill was the moderator of PBS’s “Washington Week in Review” since 1999. However, many may remember her from moderating the vice-presidential debates in 2004 (Edwards; Cheney) and in 2008 (Palin; Biden).

And just last year Ifill moderated a Democratic debate between democratic frontrunners Hilary Clinton and Bernie Sanders.

At the time of her passing she was surrounded by family and friends. She will be sadly missed in the news community.
