In March, Judy Woodruff was finally and officially named sole anchor of the “PBS NewsHour,” the nightly
program she had been shepherding alone since co-anchor Gwen Ifill died of cancer in 2016. The show is now helmed completely by women- Woodruff is also managing editor and Sara Just serves as executive producer. Under their leadership, the program has increased its nightly audience by 12 percent since 2016 to 1.9 million viewers. It remains a reliable, drama-free news source. In April, the show received a Peabody for
a report, “Inside Putin’s Russia.”
