The journalist left CNN last year and deep-sixed her "Inside Politics" show. Now comes work, via the Associated Press, that Woodruff is returning to PBS "for a project examining young people's views on religion, politics and other issues, including America's role in the world."

According to the story:
After talking to a cross-section of Americans age 16 to 25, Woodruff will detail her findings in reports on "The NewsHour with Jim Lehrer" beginning later this year and in a January 2007 documentary, PBS said Thursday.

Her work is part of a yearlong multimedia project from MacNeil Lehrer Productions that will include Internet elements and has the working title, "Generation Next: Speak Up. Be Heard." Principal funding is from The Pew Charitable Trusts.

"Our objective is to create a profile of the next generation, and to provide current decision-makers with better information about them," Woodruff said in a statement. "We want to help everyone understand the views of young people."
Now if only Aaron Brown could be returned to his rightful place at 9 p.m. Central on CNN.
