Jim Lehrer to ‘fade out’ at PBS NewsHour

Thursday, May 12, 2011

image The 76-year-old anchor of PBS’ flagship daily news program announced this morning he will step down June 6 after 36 years but will continue to appear on Fridays to moderate the show’s weekly news analysis segment, the Washington Post reports.

Add Lehrer: He says he departs with “complete confidence” that the producers will continue the program’s serious-minded journalism: “I have been laboring in the glories of daily journalism for 52 years. . . 36 of them here at the NewsHour and its earlier incarnations. . . and there comes a time to step aside from the daily process, and that time has arrived.”
