legendary journalist + politics = robert d. novak (1931-2009)

August 18, 2009


Robert Novak, one of Washington’s most influential political journalists of the past half-century, died Tuesday after a battle with brain cancer. He was 78.

Nicknamed the “prince of darkness,” Novak was both widely read and feared by Washington’s political elite. He began his famed column “Inside Report” with Rowland Evans in 1963, continuing as a duo until the latter’s death in 1993. Novak kept the column going until he was diagnosed with a brain tumor in July 2008.

Outside the Beltway, Novak was a familiar face to millions who watched him on CNN’s political chat shows like “Crossfire” and “The Capital Gang.”

Rest in peace Mr. Novak.
