Memo after the jump…

Today we are announcing that Rob Klug will be our Executive Director of Production. He will be working with David and I and each broadcast supervising the overall creative look and style of CBS News.

Rob has already been doing the job for several months and is responsible for a lot of what you see, including the map behind Scott.

We are fortunate to have Rob in this job. He has contributed so much to 48 Hours and 60 Minutes over all of his years as a director. Among many other things he was the creative force behind the new look at 60 Minutes. He will continue to work on those broadcasts while taking on these new responsibilities.
