Ray Suarez of PBS’s “NewsHour” is resigning, according to a report on Friday.

Linda Winslow, the show’s executive producer, told staff that he will “pursue several other ventures.”

Suarez has spent the past 14 years with the program.

“At the NewsHour, Ray has been a member of the Senior Correspondent team that has helped us cover an enormous array of topics (he even added football to his repertory this week) and story developments over the years,” Winslow wrote in the memo, according to Current.org “My Inbox is filled with rave reviews of his performances written by delighted station executives around the PBS universe,” she added.

“And while I don’t know if there’s a connection, he was hardly ever sick or MIA when we’ve needed him. In short, I wish there were more people like Ray Suarez in this world — and I, for one, am going to miss him very much.”
