Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan is set to deliver the keynote address at Monday night's Toner Prize Celebration — in memory of Robin Toner, the first woman to serve as national political correspondent of The New York Times.

What he'll say: "Our nation would be so much better off without all the bitter and angry politics. And if we could all just get back to being Americans once again."

  • "For our elected officials, that means putting the people’s priorities ahead of partisan interests."
  • "For members of the media, that means being a little more like Robin Toner and never losing sight of how your work affects people’s everyday lives."
  • "Now more than ever, it means not being beholden to headlines or ratings, and instead just practicing the tenets of good journalism — following a lead, gathering the facts, and shedding light on the truth."
