1. Bill Moyers Returns to Public Television, but Not PBS
http://mediadecoder.blogs.nytimes.com/2011/08/22/bill-moyers-returns-to-public-television-but-not-pbs/

"Bill Moyers says he is returning to public television in January, but he wont be found on the PBS lineup.
His new hourlong weekly show, called Moyers & Company, will focus on one-on-one interviews with people not often heard on television, thinkers who can help us understand the chaos of this time, Mr. Moyers said in a telephone interview. Were going to be concerned with the state of democracy and the state of affairs, but we will leave the daily and weekly story to others and try to do the back story.

The program will be based at WNET in New York City and distributed free to public television stations by American Public Television, an alternative distributor to PBS. Stations will be able to broadcast it at whatever time they choose. In a letter to public television executives announcing the new program, Mr. Moyers, who is 77, said that WNET was looking at showing the program on Sundays at 6 p.m..."



Bill Moyers, Host of New Public Television Series Moyers & Company

http://www.aptonline.org/aptweb.nsf/vCorporateNews/Bill+Moyers+Host+of+New+Public+Television+Series+Moyers+Company+Keynote+Speaker+at+APT+Fall+Marketplace+2011%7C08-25-2011

"BOSTON (August 25, 2011) The veteran public broadcaster Bill Moyers will be the keynote speaker at the annual APT Fall Marketplace in Memphis, Tenn., on Thursday, November 10. Moyers, who this week announced plans to release MOYERS & COMPANY, a new public television program in January 2012, will be speaking about the series and the state of journalism and public media. Moyers retired his series Bill Moyers Journal in May 2010; however, with the support of several of his long-time funders and a new grant from the Carnegie Corporation of New York, he has been working with his team at the independent production company, Public Affairs Television, to design a new broadcast that will be presented on public television by THIRTEEN for WNET and distributed by American Public Television.

One of the most prolific public broadcasting figures for more than 40 years, Moyers told stations this week that the new series MOYERS & COMPANY will offer different news, some new voices and fresh thinking, and an occasional cultural grace note. He added: We will feature people we think you and your community will want to know. There will be a diversity of voices, one-on-one interviews with lively minds rich in experience and insight, as well as an exchange of views among people who may disagree but who nonetheless agree on the importance of a civil dialogue about their differences.

The format will feature at least two segments: one timely and one timeless interview. He intends to occasionally include an essay and has said that the look and feel of this new effort will present something new and different including the set, music and graphics..."
