Bill Moyers On the Record

Born in Hugo, Bill Moyers spent his first three years in Oklahoma and maintained close ties to the state even after his family moved south of the Red River to Marshall, Texas. With degrees in journalism and divinity, the ordained Baptist minister served as Deputy Director of the Peace Corps, Press Secretary for President Lyndon Johnson, and publisher of Newsday before beginning his broadcast career in 1971.

Now, 40 years and more than 30 Emmy Awards later, Moyers returns to Oklahoma to talk about the media and the journalism profession in a one-on-one interview with Dick Pryor. Bill Moyers On the Record debuts on Thursday, January 5 at 9pm on OETA.

During his broadcast journalism career Moyers has served as chief correspondent for CBS Reports and senior news analyst for CBS News; host of Bill Moyers Journal and Now with Bill Moyers; and host of acclaimed programs including The Power of Myth, A World of Ideas, Healing and the Mind, and Amazing Grace.

Bill Moyers On the Record is the latest in a series of award-winning OETA original productions featuring interviews with influential American journalists.

Bill Moyers returns to public television with a new weekly program, Moyers & Company, which will be seen Saturdays at 5:00 pm on OETA beginning January 14, 2012.
