Longtime NBC Executive to CBS

Longtime NBC employee Steve Capus is headed to Black Rock.

Capus will join CBS in July as the top executive at Scott Pelley's evening newscast. 

Capus was pushed out of NBC by Comcast in 2013 after eight years as president of the news division.

But he has experience doing evening news. Capus served as Tom Brokaw's EP until Brokaw retired from the main anchor chair.  

He replaces Pat Shevlin, who has transferred to "60 Minutes."

There will be a bit of a learning curve for Capus. CBS produces a much harder newscast than NBC and is not as big on the fluff.
