WJLA-TV, the Allbritton Communications-owned ABC affiliate in Washington, has hired award-winning news and documentary producer Ray Farkas to develop and executive produce a new prime-time newsmagazine eventually expected to air monthly on the station.

WJLA anchors Leon Harris, Kathleen Matthews, Gordon Peterson and Maureen Bunyan are among those expected to contribute to the still-untitled newsmagazine.

Mr. Farkas worked for NBC News for more than two decades in Washington and has produced and directed prime-time news and entertainment programming for ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox, PBS, HBO and TLC.
