Jim Lehrer surgery a success

Anchor will return to 'NewsHour' in coming months

PBS anchor Jim Lehrer will return to "The NewsHour With Jim Lehrer" in the coming months following heart-valve surgery last week.

Lehrer, who hadn't feeling well the weekend before the Pennsylvania primary, was told early last week that he needed to undergo the procedure.

He had surgery Wednesday at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston.

PBS said the surgery was a success. Meanwhile, the program will be anchored by Judy Woodruff, Ray Suarez, Margaret Warner and Gwen Ifill.
