Former PBS correspondent Ray Suarez is set to join Al Jazeera America. Beginning November 11, he will be the host of “Inside Story.”
“Ray has repeatedly proven that he can deliver compelling coverage of the most challenging news stories and events with objectivity and depth, punctuated by Ray’s own brand of thoughtful analysis,” Al Jazeera America president Kate O’Brian said in a statement.
Suarez resigned last month after more than 10 years as the senior correspondent for “NewsHour.” After he signed off, he told Fox News Latino, “I felt like I didn’t have much of a future with the broadcast. (They) didn’t have much of a plan for me.”
“This is an exciting time to be joining Al Jazeera America and a great opportunity for me personally,” Suarez said. “This is exactly what I wanted to do: host a program that provides viewers with a close look at the day’s news and the issues they care about the most without the partisan rancor that you often see and hear elsewhere on television.”
