Celebrity news channel E! will livestream this year’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner red carpet, according to the Washington Post.
The news comes just one year after former NBC News anchor Tom Brokaw criticized the WHCD as “an event that separates the press from the people that they’re supposed to serve.” He said “the big press event in Washington should be that kind of glittering event.”
The annual dinner is produced by the White House Correspondents’ Association and is typically attended by high-profile journalists, Hollywood celebrities, congress members and the president. Last year’s dinner is perhaps most remembered by President Obama‘s scorching of Donald Trump.
The event takes place on Saturday and is to be emceed by comedian Conan O’Brien.
