Congrats, Linda!

From the release:

    Linda Winslow
    , Executive Producer of The NewsHour with Jim Lehrer will be recognized for excellence in journalism when The Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism presents their Alumni Awards on Friday, April 20, 2007 at the Alumni Association’s annual spring meeting. Linda Winslow, a graduate of the class of ’67, is one of four alumni being honored this year.

    Winslow’s association with Jim Lehrer and Robin MacNeil dates back to her role as producer for the National Public Affairs Center for Television (NPACT). She produced their seminal Watergate coverage in 1973 as well as PBS’s live coverage of the House Judiciary Committee’s Presidential Impeachment hearings, anchored by Jim Lehrer.

    When Jim Lehrer and Robin MacNeil created the MacNeil/Lehrer Report in 1975, Linda Winslow was tapped as one of the program’s original producers. In 1978, Winslow was named vice president in charge of news and public affairs for WETA (Washington Educational Television Association), where she was responsible for PBS coverage of major news events in Washington as well as for the weekly series Washington Week in Review and The Lawmakers. Winslow was named executive producer of The NewsHour with Jim Lehrer in November 2005.

Judy Woodruff Joins PBS’ “Newshour” As Senior Correspondent

From the release:

    Broadcast journalist Judy Woodruff will join The NewsHour with Jim Lehrer as a senior correspondent effective February 5, it was announced today by Linda Winslow, executive producer of The NewsHour. Woodruff will lead in-studio discussions, report from the field and conduct interviews for The NewsHour, as well as serve as a back-up anchor to Jim Lehrer.

    The addition of Woodruff complements The NewsHour’s existing ensemble of talented and highly-regarded senior correspondents, which includes Jeffrey Brown, Gwen Ifill, Ray Suarez and Margaret Warner.

    Woodruff, who has covered every presidential election since 1976, will also serve as editor of The NewsHour’s 2008 political coverage, which will encompass the upcoming presidential primary campaigns and elections, 2008 convention coverage and the 2008 presidential election. Additionally, The NewsHour will also closely cover bell-weather House, Senate and gubernatorial races and will expand its previously-successful “local/national” partnerships with PBS stations across the country, which brought significant local political coverage together under the national umbrella of the Online NewsHour.

    Woodruff’s return to The NewsHour is a homecoming of sorts. From 1983 to 1993, she was the chief Washington correspondent for The MacNeil/Lehrer NewsHour, the current program’s predecessor. Most recently, Woodruff has been a special correspondent for The NewsHour for the past several months, during which she also served as the editor and reporter for Generation Next, a multi-media project produced by MacNeil Lehrer Productions, which examined the views, attitudes and aspirations of young Americans aged 16 to 25.
