Longtime broadcaster Jane Pauley told an audience at DePauw University Friday what the NewsHour means to her. “I depend on the NewsHour on PBS,” reports the university’s website. “I pray that Jim Lehrer lives forever, because what they do is journalism, and in broadcast journalism it is, in my opinion, the absolute best and I absolutely depend on it. I gotta say the network shows are, to me, I watch them but they’re optional. The NewsHour is not optional.”
