CBS News unveiled new on-air lineups Monday for its flagship programs “CBS Evening News” and “CBS This Morning” along with personnel moves at “60 Minutes.” Today’s official announcement confirms the high-profile move that had been widely speculated to be in the works, with “CBS This Morning” co-host Norah O’Donnell stepping up to replace Jeff Glor as anchor of “CBS Evening News.”
Glor’s fate appears to still be up in the air, with CBS News President and Senior Executive Producer Susan Zirinsky commenting in the announcement: “We are grateful to Jeff Glor for his award-winning work and his commitment to both his colleagues and to our viewers. As we transition the ‘Evening News’ to Washington, we are discussing opportunities for Jeff to remain with CBS News and continue providing the same substantive, trusted reporting that he has been offering for the past 12 years.”
As we reported last week, the network has settled on a “CBS This Morning” lineup consisting of Gayle King, Anthony Mason and Tony Dokoupil.
O’Donnell’s new assignments officially make her anchor and managing editor of the “CBS Evening News” along with “60 Minutes” contributing correspondent and anchor of political event coverage for the network.
Additionally, the network announced that John Dickerson will report for “60 Minutes” and contribute to CBS News’ election specials.
