Jim Lehrer, Longtime PBS News Anchor, Is Dead at 85

From the New York Times: Jim Lehrer, Longtime PBS News Anchor, Is Dead at 85

Yes, I know, I am terribly late at posting this; I have a lot of reasons, but no excuses.

The first time Jim Lehrer visited The Bob Edwards Show, he was joined by long-time partner Robert MacNeil – this interview was frequently repeated on the program over the years. But that wasn’t the only time he was on the program…he visited twice more to discuss his books Oh, Johnny on 04/14/2009, and Top Down: A Novel of the Kennedy Assassination on 11/22/2013.

I’ve included both these complete programs below, along with the script/roadmaps for the programs.
