UPDATE: Jim Lehrer

From PBS.org:

    I’ve been wondering how Mr. Lehrer is doing during his convalescence, so I spoke with Linda Winslow, executive producer of “The NewsHour.”

    “I just talked to Jim and he sounded great. He didn’t sound unrealistic about anything. … He’s coping,” she said late yesterday from her office at “The NewsHour” studios in Arlington, Va.

    During Mr. Lehrer’s absence, Ms. Winslow said the anchoring duties will be rotated among Ms. Woodruff, Ms. Ifill and the other members of “The NewsHour” all stars — Jeffrey Brown, Ray Suarez and Margaret Warner.
