PBS announced today that Jim Lehrer is stepping down as the regular anchor on “PBS Newshour,” Entertainment Weekly reported in Inside TV.

Lehrer will continue to moderate his Friday analysis segment with Mark Shields and David Brooks.

“Newshour” has been transitioning since 2009, when it was known as “The NewsHour with Jim Lehrer.” Since that time, other hosts have been included in the rotation, notably Gwen Ifill, Judy Woodruff, Jeffrey Brown, Ray Suarez and Margaret Warner.

The show airs nightly, online and on more than 300 PBS stations nationwide, the story says.
