Word is that CBS News is not happy with the Evening News and they re looking to make a change.
Back in June, FTVLive told you that CBS was looking at Norah O’Donnell as the person to take over the CBS Evening News.
In January, FTVLive told you that O’Donnell was making a push for Glor’s chair at Evening News.
Now Variety is reporting that CBS executives are considering putting “CBS This Morning” anchor Norah O’Donnell in the lead role of its evening-news broadcast, these people said, as well as moving the broadcast to Washington, D.C. instead of its longtime roost in New York City.
CBS News declined to make executives available for comment. These plans are not definitive, these people cautioned, and there is no guarantee they will come to fruition. Jeff Glor remains anchor of “CBS Evening News” at present.
In other words….it’s totally happening.
