Roger Ebert to appear in new PBS show

September 10, 2010 (CHICAGO)

"Roger Ebert Presents: At the Movies" will air on public television beginning in January. That's where Ebert and the late Gene Siskel debuted their show 35 years ago.

Ebert will be producing the new show along with his wife Chaz. It will be hosted by Christy Lemire of the Associated Press and Elvis Mitchell of National Public Radio.

Cancer surgeries have left Ebert unable to talk. But he'll use his computer generated voice to give reviews and talk about the state of film in a segment called "Roger's Office."
