“Covering impeachment hearings is how the PBS NewsHour got its start, with Robert MacNeil and Jim Lehrer during the Watergate hearings,” said Sara Just, PBS NewsHour Executive Producer and WETA Senior Vice President. “It is as important now as it was then that we provide the audience with access to these historic developments and insight for understanding their significance.”
