Suarez Joins Al Jazeera America

Will Host Daily New Analysis Show on Network

Ray Suarez, former chief national correspondent for PBS NewsHour, is joining Al Jazeera America.

Suarez will be hosting a new daily program, Inside Story, starting Monday, Nov. 11. The show is described as a "behind the headlines" look at the top stories of the day.

Suarez was with NewsHour for over a decade and before that hosted NPR's Talk of the Nation. His resume also includes reporting for NBC affiliate WMAQ-TV Chicago, and stints at CNN, ABC Radio and CBS Radio.

“This is an exciting time to be joining Al Jazeera America and a great opportunity for me personally,” Suarez said in a statement. “This is exactly what I wanted to do: host a program that provides viewers with a close look at the day’s news and the issues they care about the most without the partisan rancor that you often see and hear elsewhere on television.”
