Set to launch this summer, the new afternoon block will replace the last half hour of "Live From," along with "Inside Politics," "Crossfire" and "Wolf Blitzer Reports."

In 1974, my first election night, I anchored the West. When they showed me the set the first time, it was built but not painted. Dick Salant, (then) president of CBS, said, "See, that's where Roger will sit." In front of his seat in black letters, it said MUDD. And he said, "That's Dan's seat," and there was RATHER, etc. And then he said, "That's your seat." And of course it was, because it said FEMALE. . . . In 1974, (in the midst of) the women's movement!

Squeezed into a sky box, scanning the arena, trying to absorb everything and miss nothing, CNN "Election 2000" co-anchor Judy Woodruff is like a sprinter waiting for the gun to sound--coiled intensity, total concentration, not a drop of sweat . . . yet. In minutes, President Clinton will begin his Monday night address at the Democratic National Convention.

The cool, elegant voice of anchor Judy Woodruff is the prelude. She begins by saying the Public Broadcasting System's "Frontline" broadcast, "AIDS--A National Inquiry," (airing Tuesday on KCET Channel 28 at 8 p.m.) will "depart from its usual format." Instead of the documentary's hourlong broadcast, Woodruff, "Frontline's" regular anchor as well as Washington correspondent for "The MacNeil/Lehrer NewsHour," notes the program will last two hours (see adjoining story).

Judy Woodruff, one of the most recognizable faces of the CNN brand and the host of a political show that is a must-watch in Washington, announced Thursday that she's leaving the cable network. In a message to her colleagues, Woodruff said she was ready for a break from daily journalism after 30 years in television. "I'm discussing several long-form projects in television," she wrote. "I'll also teach, do some writing and be an occasional consultant and contributor to CNN."

When CNN's Judy Woodruff recently traveled to the kitchen of Sen. Barbara A. Mikulski (D-Md.) to watch as she prepared her signature crab cakes for a new cooking segment on "Inside Politics," some disillusioned CNN insiders feared the worst. For months, rumors have swirled that "Inside Politics," CNN's serious afternoon program beloved by Washington insiders, was in trouble.
