Mr. Lehrer, who will turn 75 next Tuesday, isnâ€™t stepping down. But in September the program will be retitled â€œPBS NewsHourâ€ and return to a two-anchor format, which it had until 1995, when Robert MacNeil left.
Linda Winslow, the executive producer of â€œNewsHour,â€ said the changes will be made for a simple reason: â€œWhat we were trying to accomplish was a more engaging program.â€
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.
