CBS News Chief Sean McManus Wants An Outsider In The Evening News Chair

Highlights from Sean McManus‘s chat with reporters at the Television Critics Association session in Pasadena, via the AP:

> “The new top anchor for CBS News will likely be someone who doesn’t work there now,” David Bauder writes.

> McManus “said he was looking for a single anchor for the evening news…and wanted a high-profile person with ‘a wealth of experience and credibility covering the news’ at one of the Big Three broadcast networks.”

> “In the coming months, he will be making changes designed to give the network’s correspondents a higher profile.”

> He wouldn’t talk about Katie Couric
