Anchored by Judy Woodruff, the program's weekday broadcasts run for one hour and are produced by WETA-TV in Washington, D.C. From August 5, 2013, to November 11, 2016, Woodruff and then-co-anchor Gwen Ifill were the first and only all-female anchor team on a national nightly news program on American broadcast television. On Saturdays and Sundays, PBS distributes a 30-minute edition of the program, PBS NewsHour Weekend, anchored by Hari Sreenivasan and others and produced in New York City by WNET.
The PBS NewsHour originates from WETA's studio facilities in Arlington County, Virginia (for its weekday editions), Arizona State University's Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication (later weekday editions with updates targeted for the West, online, and late-night viewers), and the Tisch/WNET Studios at Lincoln Center in Manhattan (for its weekend editions); additional facilities are in San Francisco and Denver. The program is a collaboration between WETA-TV, WNET, and PBS member stations KQED in San Francisco, KETC in St. Louis and WTTW in Chicago.
