Bill Moyers may be returning to PBS, the New York Times reports.
Moyers, who left the network in 2010, has apparently received a $2 million grant to launch a new show. The Carnegie Corporation, which issued the grant, initally listed a "29-month grant of $2000000 for the 'Something Different With Bill Moyers' show" on its website in a press release before removing the information. However, a search for "moyers" on the foundation's website yields this result, suggesting that the scrubbing was not entirely clean:
In an email to the Times, Moyers said that he has been mulling a weekly, half-hour debate series, but that nothing had been finalized, and that he does not know if the show will air on PBS or, indeed, at all.
If he does return, Moyers would, in a sense, be repeating himself. He came out of retirement in 2007 after leaving PBS in 2004.
