Many people have often made the mistake of calling Betsy Woodruff as the daughter of famous American journalist Judy Woodruff. It’s not at all surprising seeing as both of them are world-renowned news journalists and reporters in their own right.
Betsy Woodruff is a popular journalist for the Daily Beast since 2015 and has been nominated for numerous journalism awards in her field and out of it. With a dashing evergreen smile and a charming, friendly personality it’s no wonder she’s so popular. She has appeared on multiple shows like Morning Joe, Hardball with Chris Matthews, and various daily TV shows.
Betsy Woodruff’s Bio
Betsy was born on 31st October, 1989. She is 29 years old and her zodiac sign is a feisty Scorpio, making her fit for her reporter job which requires toughness and grit. She was also born in America, Purcellville, Virginia. Her parents are Scott Woodruff and Jane Tharp Woodruff, and they got married on 9th July 1983, around 6 years before Betsy was born.
She seemingly inherited her ‘reporter gene’ from her father, who was also in the same field as she is now. Her mother, on the other hand, is a housewife with a degree in Marketing, from the University of Missouri. Both parents seem to prefer a less public lifestyle than their daughter, though her mother is keen to share pictures on Facebook with loving captions directed about her family.
Betsy also has a brother, Chris Woodruff, and a sister called Jane. Chris works as an executive director for Life Raft International and lives in Thailand, while Jane works in a lawyer company. It may seem that the three siblings aren’t that close, but luckily we can clearly see on social media how close the family seems to be.
Betsy has honed her professional skills during her college years in Hillsdale College, managing to snatch an English degree in 2012.
Betsy Woodruff’s Personal life
Behind closed curtains, and when she isn’t replying to tweets asking of her relation with Judy Woodruff, Betsy seems to have found happiness in her Jonathan Swan, a fellow colleague and Australian journalist. She and the husband-to-be announced the engagement this year on 11th March, with a picture of the two lovebirds flashing their engagement rings.
Her long-term boyfriend works as a political reporter for Axios, with a history of covering political presidencies and misuse of government money.
This is something the young journalist won a Wallace Brown Award for, his journalism achievement showing his equal prowess as his fiancee. Just like Betsy, he has appeared on the same news shows as her. The couple appears happy and enjoying their love life. On 11th March 2018, Betsy’s mother even posted a picture of the two lovebirds, stating that love is in the air. Even more, she mentioned her happiness as the family continuing to expand with the addition of Betsy’s new fiancee.
The reporter couple has not tied the knot yet. They are enjoying their pre-honeymoon phase by spending time in each other’s arms. The two are frequently seen flaunting pictures on social media, sharing their love and support. On 3 March 2016, Jonathan jokingly said on Twitter not to listen to his partner Betsy, that she is in fact more of a strategic philanthropist than a reporter and partner.
Her net worth is estimated to be large, though the public eye isn’t too sure how much it actually is. We can deduce that solely from her journalism day job in The Daily Beast she gets around 69K$-74K$, but this isn’t a hard fact.
Betsy has been on the job for more than three years, with extensive experience and knowledge of the ins and outs. She has also worked for Slate, Washington Examiner, and National Reviews. It’s almost guaranteed her worth is paid in the hundred thousands.
Betsy’s social media presence is undoubtedly impactful and huge. With the handle of @woodruffbets, she is most active on Twitter as many other news journalists and outlets. Her jobs hangs on the quick efficiency of that social media site.
Her profile on Instagram is active but set to private, but despite that she has garnered more than a half thousand of followers. It’s clear the truth-seeker depends on a healthy balance of personal intimacy of her life, and the public life that seeks justice by using the written and spoken word. Her Facebook on the other hand hasn’t been that active.
Betsy’s height is estimated to be around 5 feet and 5 inches tall, 165 centimeters, and weighing at 57 kilograms (125lbs). She’s fit for her job, and has a good and healthy physique with a ratio of 34-26-34 inches.
