WASHINGTON (Sinclair Broadcast Group) - The White House Correspondents' Association has announced Michelle Wolf as the entertainer at their annual dinner this year.

The comedian most recently performed an HBO special, and is the host of a new Netflix show "Nice Lady."

Margaret Talev, president of the WHCA made the announcement Thursday morning in a press release.

“Our dinner honors the First Amendment and strong, independent journalism. Her embrace of these values and her truth-to-power style make her a great friend to the WHCA. Her Pennsylvania roots, stints on Wall Street and in science and self-made, feminist edge make her the right voice now.”

The dinner will take place April 28.

It's unclear whether President Donald Trump will attend.

He chose not to participate in 2017.
