The questions about where Jeff Glor would end up — and particularly about whether he would remain with CBS — have been answered. Glor, who recently was replaced as anchor of “CBS Evening News,” will remain with the network, landing a spot on “CBS This Morning: Saturday.”
Deadline reports that Glor will be co-hosting the weekly program with Dana Jacobson and Michelle Miller.
“Glor also has been named CBS News Special Correspondent, in which capacity he will report feature stories and investigative reports for the network,” Deadline reports. “He starts his new gig June 22.”
Deadline adds: “In the coming weeks, Glor will begin a new ongoing series for all CBS News broadcasts and platforms under the banner ‘Who We Are,’ CBS News chief Susan Zirinsky said in today’s announcement. That franchise will feature stories similar to his reporting on Gold Star families and people across the country who are ‘defying the odds,’ the announcement described. And, Glor will work with the CBS News investigative unit on reports such as his recent examination of the National Flood Insurance Program, which sparked congressional action.”
Glor signed off as anchor of “CBS Evening News” on May 10, with Norah O’Donnell to replace him and the show moving to Washington.
