Jeff Glor Named New ‘CBS Evening News’ Anchor

CBS News announced Wednesday that correspondent Jeff Glor will be the new anchor on CBS Evening News and will take over “later this year.” “In his more than 10 years at CBS News, Jeff has earned the trust of viewers and his colleagues. He represents the best journalistic values and traditions that will carry the Evening News into a digital future,” CBS News President David Rhodes said in a statement. Scott Pelley had anchored the broadcast for the past six years, but was moved off the program earlier this year. Anthony Mason, who has since served as interim anchor, will continue as a CBS News senior national correspondent and co-host of CBS This Morning: Saturday.
