CBS News Closes In on Permanent Anchor for Saturday 'Evening News' TVNewser

CBS News is close to naming its new full-time anchor for the Saturday edition of "CBS Evening News," with the job apparently set to go to CBS News national correspondent Jim Axelrod, reports TVNewser.com.

Axelrod has been the main fill-in anchor since Russ Mitchell left CBS News a year ago, the piece adds. The new role would formalize the job for him.

Jeff Glor anchors the network’s Sunday evening news.
