Report: CBS Anchor Scott Pelley Looking for New Producer NY Post

CBS News anchor Scott Pelley is reportedly looking for a new executive producer to lift his evening news program from third place, according to the New York Post's Page Six.

Pelley is said to be seeking a replacement for producer Patricia Shevlin in an effort to boost his ratings. A CBS representative said the story was "ridiculous," adding, "Another day, another silly rumor about the fastest-growing evening newscast on broadcast TV.”

The report cites a source saying, “Patricia has been there for a long time and does an outstanding job, but Pelley doesn’t want to be in third.”
