The concerns about exactly where Jeff Glor would finish up — and specifically about irrespective of whether he would stay with CBS — have been answered. Glor, who lately was replaced as anchor of “CBS Evening News,” will stay with the network, landing a spot on “CBS This Morning: Saturday.”
Deadline reports that Glor will be co-hosting the weekly system with Dana Jacobson and Michelle Miller.
“Glor also has been named CBS News Specific Correspondent, in which capacity he will report function stories and investigative reports for the network,” Deadline reports. “He begins his new gig June 22.”
Deadline adds: “In the coming weeks, Glor will commence a new ongoing series for all CBS News broadcasts and platforms below the banner ‘Who We Are,’ CBS News chief Susan Zirinsky stated in today’s announcement. That franchise will function stories related to his reporting on Gold Star households and people today across the nation who are ‘defying the odds,’ the announcement described. And, Glor will perform with the CBS News investigative unit on reports such as his current examination of the National Flood Insurance coverage Plan, which sparked congressional action.”
Glor signed off as anchor of “CBS Evening News” on Could 10, with Norah O’Donnell to replace him and the show moving to Washington.
