Meacham is staying on with WNET and will lead a new series of called “Perspectives” which will air on TV and online. He’ll also continue to contribute to “Need to Know.”
“I love Alison and the Need to Know team, but I don’t think the broadcast needs me as a co-anchor,” Meacham said. “When I told Neal [Shapiro, president of WNET] that I would be leaving, he very kindly asked me to consider this other possibility. It’s a great idea for me, and I’m looking forward to it.”
