Jeff Fager on Evening News: ‘That’s not broken, that’s incredible’

Another bit from today’s CBS News town hall media put on by the incoming chairman Jeff Fager and president David Rhodes. According to an insider in the room, Fager had this to say about the “CBS Evening News with Katie Couric.”

There’s plenty of reason to be proud our evening newscast. It is at least as good as the competition and more often than not – it’s better. But I have heard people say the evening news is a broken model–a broken model with more than 20 million Americans watching CBS, NBC or ABC every night? Most people don’t watch more than one night a week so more than 50 million Americans watching in a week? That’s not broken…that’s incredible.
