NEW YORK (AP) -- Former PBS journalist Ray Suarez is joining Al-Jazeera America to host a daily show, "Inside Story," that airs in the late afternoon each weekday.
Suarez worked at PBS' "NewsHour" for 20 years, most recently as chief national correspondent. He's also worked for CNN, NPR and NBC's local station in Chicago. He'll start at Al-Jazeera America next Monday.
Since its launch in August, Al-Jazeera has struggled to find an audience in the United States, averaging 11,000 viewers in daytime during October.
Suarez said he looked forward to a show that gives an in-depth look at the news, rather than "six people sitting around a table yelling at each other."
