In the video posted above they also seem to make out that Norah O’Donnell is the first woman to anchor the CBS Evening News solely. Didn’t Katie Couric do that or were they referencing the managing editor/lead political anchor aspect of her role?
I do feel quite sorry for Glor, seemed to be quite a public appeal for him to remain at the network and certainly comes across as this was all done behind his back.
It's very strange, CBS has a habit of reinventing the wheel, and constantly changing and shifting their focus. The programme is 3rd because it's never recovered from the Killian documents scandal nor has it ever settled - and when it does (under Couric and Co, maybe not as successfully, and certainly with Scott Pelley) they change and change everything.
Maybe they need to forget Walter Cronkite and his day and focus on the present day, this obsession with the past seems to be their biggest issue (when do they NOT mention Cronkite in an anchor shuffle, or in a history item?).
You compare it to the UK, maybe they need to stop pumping so much of their brand into the personalities that front it and make the programmes stand in their own right.
Oh it's such a perfect day, I'm glad I spent it with you...
