Last week, FTVLive told you that CBS Correspondent John Miller was looking to leave TV news to become a cop....again.
Now Page Six says that it is a 99.44% done deal that he is headed to the NYPD.
They write that the CBS is negotiating his exit as a senior correspondent to join his old friend Bill Bratton back at the Police Department, a reliable source tells me.
Miller has twice left the news business to serve under Bratton, first in the NYPD and later during the veteran top cop’s stint as commissioner of the Los Angeles Police Department.
In the past two years, Miller has been a prominent presence discussing national security and crime on “CBS This Morning” and on the “CBS Evening News with Scott Pelley.”
“John has been doing great on television,” commented a close friend, “but at heart, he’s a ‘buff.’
“He wants the badge, the gun and the adrenaline — to be in the center of the action.”
Miller is expected to land a top intelligence or counterterrorism role with Bratton.
