What’s better than watching women hosting a news show? Two women hosting a nightly news show. For the first time ever, Gwen Ifill and Judy Woodruff will co-host NewsHour, making them the first women on television to host a nightly news show. When Newshour was first televised Jim Lehrer and Robert MacNeil were the two co-hosts. Now, these empowered women will take over permanently. Ifill and Woodruff worked together before and they couldn’t be more thrilled to work side by side again.
Ifill: "I am so pleased to be taking on this new role alongside my colleague and dear friend Judy Woodruff. We've successfully worked side-by-side for many years covering conventions, elections and countless other news events. We make a great team."
Woodruff: "Gwen and I love working together and appreciate the trust viewers put in the PBS NewsHour, both on TV and online. Working with Linda and this entire terrific team, we'll do our best to make sure the next chapter for the NewsHour upholds its reputation for excellence, independence and integrity." [Jezebel]
