Lehrer Moves Over as PBS ‘NewsHour’ Gets Remade

Nov 30, 2009  •  Post A Comment

Starting Dec. 7, Jim Lehrer’s name will not appear in the title of PBS’ evening newscast — the first time since 1976, Elizabeth Jensen reports in the New York Times.

The report will be renamed the “PBS NewsHour” and Gwen Ifill, Judy Woodruff and Jeffrey Brown will rotate as Lehrer’s co-anchors.

Former CBS News reporter Hari Sreenivasan has been tapped to recap the news each night, and the "PBS NewsHour" will launch a revamped web site Thursday.
