Jim Lehrer News Hour to get makeover. Will now be PBS News Hour


Mr. Lehrer, who will turn 75 next Tuesday, isn’t stepping down. But in September the program will be retitled “PBS NewsHour” and return to a two-anchor format, which it had until 1995, when Robert MacNeil left.

Linda Winslow, the executive producer of “NewsHour,” said the changes will be made for a simple reason: “What we were trying to accomplish was a more engaging program.”

By far my favorite TV news. It is very informative and fair. There are not shouting matches or celebrity gossip crap. Best of all no sports. Just needs more lasers.
