‘CBS Evening News’ EP Pat Shevlin Stepping Down

ShevlinCBSPolitico’s Dylan Byers reports Pat Shevlin is stepping down from “CBS Evening News” just shy of three years as Executive Producer of the show. Byers reports Shevlin sent a memo to her colleagues announcing the move. Shevlin, who has been with CBS News since 1973, is expected to stay with the network.

Shevlin has been EP since June 2011, when Scott Pelley took over as anchor. The show, which remains in third place among the evening newscasts, has seen ratings growth under her tenure, and has won three Emmys.

Asia bureau chief Marsha Cooke recently returned to New York and is likely to take over as EP. Sonya McNair, senior vice president for communications for CBS News, declined to comment on the changes.
