Jonathan Capehart, a Washington Post opinion writer and anchor of MSNBC’s The Sunday Show with Jonathan Capehart, was today named a regular contributor to the PBS NewsHour. As part of this role, Capehart will provide political analysis and commentary alongside New York Times columnist David Brooks for the Friday discussion segment Brooks & Capehart, regularly moderated by anchor and managing editor Judy Woodruff, in addition to PBS NewsHour political specials. Capehart, who has served as an occasional PBS NewsHour contributor since 2018, succeeds syndicated columnist Mark Shields, who was a PBS NewsHour regular for more than 33 years before stepping down in December 2020.
