A 25-year veteran of ABC News is exiting the network for a new job with PBS. Deadline.com reports that ABC News’ Deputy Washington Bureau Chief Sara Just is making the move.
Just will become exec producer of “PBS NewsHour,” and will be a senior vice president at WETA, the Washington public TV station.
Just has held her current position at ABC since April. She will start her new job Sept. 2, succeeding “PBS NewsHour’s” Linda Winslow, who is retiring.
“During her tenure at ABC News, Just also served as Senior Washington Producer for ‘Good Morning America’ and spent 17 years as a producer at ‘Nightline,’ working with longtime anchor Ted Koppel,” the story reports. “Just’s hire comes on the heels of WETA taking over ‘NewsHour’ from MacNeil/Lehrer Productions, the company named after former anchors Robert MacNeil and Jim Lehrer, on July 1.”
