Moyers’ Journal and Now will end in April

Print More

Bill Moyers will retire his weekly series at the end of April, at the same time its Friday-night stablemate, Now on PBS, comes to the end of its run.

This means not only a reduced presence for one of PBS’s journalistic stars and the possible idling of two prize-winning public-affairs production teams, but also the mixed opportunity/problem of a 90-minute opening on the network’s Friday-night feed.

PBS will announce plans in January for its public-affairs lineup to take effect in May, according to a statement from the network last week, and declined to comment on the plans prematurely.

Moyers, who is 75, told Current he had planned to retire from the weekly Bill Moyers’ Journal on Dec. 25, but PBS asked him last month to arrange extended funding and keep the program going through April.
