News anchor Bill Moyers, once a mainstay on PBS, is returning to television with "Moyers & Company," a new hourlong interview show that will appear on American Public Television, reports The New York Times.

The program will seek to interview unique guests, "thinkers who can help us understand the chaos of this time," Moyers told the newspaper.

The program will be broadcast on WNET in New York City on Sundays at 6 p.m. ET. The APT outlets that broadcast the show will be allowed to choose the time slots when they will air the show.

Moyers retired from PBS in April 2010. For the new show, Moyers received $2 million from the Carnegie Corporation of New York. He first went to PBS with the show, but was told there was no appropriate time slot for the new program.

The Times reported that Anne Bentley, a spokesperson for PBS, issued a statement saying, "Bill Moyers has been a distinctive voice on public television for decades,” and adding that his new show "will build on this legacy."
