BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) — “PBS NewsHour” has named Gwen Ifill and Judy Woodruff as co-anchors and co-managing editors of the weeknight broadcast.

The network said Tuesday that the Washington-based Ifill and Woodruff will share anchor duties Mondays through Thursdays. Each Friday, Woodruff will anchor solo as Ifill continues to host “Washington Week” that evening.

Hari Sreenivasan will serve as senior correspondent of the “NewsHour,” along with his duties anchoring the New York-based “PBS NewsHour Weekend” on Saturdays and Sundays starting Sept 7.

In recent years, the “NewsHour” has had rotating teams of anchors who included Ifill and Woodruff.

The announcements were made at a session of the Television Critics Association.
