Report: Lara Logan to Return to ’60 Minutes’ Early Next Year

lara logan benghazi reportPOLITICO is reporting that Lara Logan and producer Max McClellan will return to “60 Minutes” in early 2014.

Logan was placed on a leave of absence after her October 27 Benghazi report was discredited and a CBS internal report found the story “deficient in several respects.”

CBS News Chairman and EP of “60 Minutes” Jeff Fager held a meeting with show staffers on December 5, according to POLITICO, where he answered questions about the botched report and indicated he didn’t know how long Logan and her producer would be off-air.

“60 Minutes” spokesperson Kevin Tedesco tells TVNewser: “Lara Logan’s return has not been scheduled.  Beyond that, we do not comment on speculation.”
