Bob Schieffer To Leave “Face the Nation” May 31st

May 7, 2015

One of my favorites.

They really do not make them like this anymore.  I have always admired the fact Bob Schieffer learned to write a news story and make a factual accounting of what happened before he learned how to look into the lense of a camera.  There is just no way to put a price on sound journalism.

Bob Schieffer’s last Sunday as host of CBS’ “Face the Nation” will be on May 31.

The veteran newsman, who announced his retirement last month, had said only that he would be leaving this summer. But summer’s coming early for Schieffer, who wants to relax for the warm weather months while CBS gives his successor, John Dickerson, the chance to settle in before the presidential campaign begins in earnest.

Schieffer, who is 78, hasn’t said what he will be doing after leaving as the network’s chief Washington correspondent.

But if he does appear on television again, one thing’s for sure. He said, “I’ll never work any place other than CBS.”
