(When will the Anchor Bob campaign to keep Bob Schieffer in the CBS Evening News chair officially begin? We saw a few signs of it in December…)
“After a serious wound from “Memogate” and Rather’s departure after 24 years as anchor, Schieffer and the rest of the team have since March been righting the ship and launching the future of the news division. Ratings are up, as is morale,” today’s Hollywood Reporter says in a story about Rome Hartman‘s first EP day. Paul Gough writes:
“Schieffer’s own future? He said he’s having fun and enjoying himself but knows the assignment isn’t permanent. ‘It depends on Katie,’ Schieffer said of the options Couric is said to be weighing as her contract at NBC News expires. ‘I hope we can get her here.’”
> Also: “Hartman also dispelled a rumor that his term as executive producer will be limited, and that there will be a change at the top once another anchor is named. ‘I’m not a seat warmer,’ Hartman said.”
