E! to cover red carpet of White House Correspondents' Dinner
UPI News Service, 04/27/2013
The annual White House Correspondents' Dinner Saturday will be preceded by E! Entertainment's live coverage of red carpet arrivals for the first time.
The so-called nerd prom is hosted by the White House Correspondents' Association and traditionally attended by the president and a slew of celebrities. The event to raise scholarship funds for journalism students is held at the Washington Hilton Hotel.
Comedian Conan O'Brien is hosting the event, The Hollywood Reporter said Friday.
Actors, filmmakers and musicians attend the event each year as guests of media outlets. Among those expected to attend Saturday night are South Korean pop star Psy, who will be sitting at the CBS table alongside actress Claire Danes, her actor husband, Hugh Dancy, and "Hawaii Five-O's" Daniel Dae Kim.
