Robert MacNeil–the “MacNeil” in PBS’s long-running “MacNeil/Lehrer Report”–will return to “PBS NewsHour” for the first time since he retired in 1995 as a co-anchor of the show, reports TVNewser.com.

MacNeil will report on the six-part "Autism Now," a comprehensive look at the disorder, the story says.

MacNeil said his interest in the series grew out of the fact that his 6-year-old grandson has the disorder, the piece notes. He has been working on the series for more than a year, the story says.
