Emmy-award winning CBS News correspondent Jeff Glor has been named anchor of the CBS Evening News. He has reported across the globe for virtually all CBS News broadcasts and digital platforms in his 10 years with the network. He has anchored numerous breaking news stories, including most recently in the field for Hurricane Irma and in the studio for the Las Vegas shootings.
It is needless to say this is a great moment in Glor’s journalistic career. There are truly impressive and historic shoes that he now fills when behind the anchor desk at CBS but his integrity as a journalist–a must for anyone who wishes to convey the news that matters to the nation–will allow him to make a comfortable fit.
I am delighted with this news and know he will make his mark in his duties on air.
