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.
