Woodward was promoted to assistant managing editor for the Metro section in 1979. He became assistant managing editor for Investigative News in 1982.
Bob Woodward was born in 1943, and grew up in Wheaton, Illinois. He graduated from Yale University in 1965, and served as a communications officer in the U.S. Navy from 1965 to 1970.
