After 14 years, Ray Suarez, Senior Correspondent for the PBS NewsHour, is leaving the program in two weeks, the Maynard Institute (www.mije.org.) is reporting.

It's a time of change for the NewsHour, whose founders Jim Lehrer and Robin MacNeill are in the process of transferring ownership of the program to WETA-TV in Arlington, Va. The news program made history last month when it named Gwen Ifil and Judy Woodruff co-anchors, the first all-female anchor team on a national newscast. The show has also expanded to a weekend newscast helmed by Hari Sreenivasan.

The 56-year-old Suarez's next move is unclear, though the Maynard Institute article indicated he is weighing academic, print and broadcasting options. Suarez hosted radio's Talk of the Nation before joining the NewsHour.
