Bill Moyers Coming Back to a TV Near You
Posted on Jan 11, 2012
Good thing he wasn’t gone for long. Veteran broadcast journalist and perennial class act Bill Moyers is making his TV comeback this weekend with a new show, “Moyers & Company,” after almost two years off the air. The growing income inequality issue was just one of the problems of our time that convinced Moyers that his time wasn’t up as a rare voice of reason in the media mix—that, and this moment in history strikes him as one worth covering. —KA
Though he originally planned to use his “retirement” to work on a focused documentary project on the President for whom he once worked, Lyndon B. Johnson, he ultimately decided, as the Times reported, that “today is more interesting than yesterday.”
Unlike his previous shows, which were distributed by PBS, Moyers & Company is being distributed by American Public Television, a separate and independent distribution company.
