Ray Suarez Resigns From PBS


, ,

Chief National Correspondent for PBS NewsHour Ray Suarez will leave the show after 14 years on the job, according to posts on the journalist’s Twitter feed this weekend.
The move comes after the release of Suarez’s book “Latino Americans,” a companion to the six-hour PBS series documenting the Hispanic experience in the United States.
News of Suarez’s departure first surfaced on Twitter on Friday, when reporter Paul Farhi of the Washington Post tweeted that Suarez would leave PBS to work on a book. Suarez confirmed the news.  Suarez, 56, elaborated in a statement cited by Richard Prince at the Maynard Institute for Journalism Education.
“I am currently considering a wide range of very attractive options in broadcasting, print, and academia,” Suarez told Prince. “Confident that something wonderful will shake out, I was ready to leave the NewsHour.”
