He has contributed so much to this nation - producing decades of investigative PBS documentaries and demonstrating how Liberal journalism and commentary can be kind and respectful, as well as strong and authoritative. Bill Moyers will be missed.

His many fans were able to talk him into staying on the air a little longer, but this time, Bill Moyers tells his viewers in a letter, "This time, it's the real deal." Here is an excerpt:

Dear Viewers:

The third and final year of Moyers & Company comes to an end on January 2 and I am writing to assure you that this time it's the real deal. You may recall that we had originally raised the funds in 2011 for a two-year series but when I announced last fall that the end was near, thousands of you wrote imploring us to reconsider. My long-time funders came forward with a renewed commitment to a third year of support. How could I say no?

But as the end of the third year approaches it's time finally to sign off.

I do so as the luckiest fellow in broadcast journalism for having been a part of public television for over half of my 80 years. " See full letter:
