Schieffer Signs Off: “Goodnight Everyone. I’ll See You Next Time From Washington”

Bob Schieffer‘s CBS Evening News goodbye:

“As I mentioned earlier, tonight brings to an end my year and a half here in New York. Next week, I will be back on my old beat in Washington. We are ending just the way i like, with a scoop, the first look at our new state-of-the-art newsroom. I can’t give you a tour because it’s not quite finished yet but here is someone who will be a permanent fixture, my friend, Katie Couric.”

Couric introduced a video tribute of Schieffer. Then he concluded:

And may I say a word to each of you out there. This was a totally unexpected adventure for me but I’ve loved every minute of it. Spending this last year and a half helping to shape and sometimes guide this great news organization has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. In March of last year, you invited me into your homes, but what made me feel good was is you were kind enough to invite me back. I will always remember that. Russ Mitchell will be here tomorrow and Monday, and then it will be the CBS Evening News with Katie Couric. Goodnight everyone. I’ll see you next time from Washington.”
