Terri Stewart Named CBS News National Editor

CBS News has named Terri Stewart as its new national editor. Stewart has been the northeast bureau chief for CBS, and has been with the company since 1986.

In her new role she will oversee day-to-day coverage for hard news and special events. She will effectively be replacing Bill Felling, who was named executive director of news services for CBS a few weeks back.

“Over the years she has held a number of key positions at the Broadcast Center, coordinating news coverage and often shedding light on stories and people with little visibility,” writes CBS News VP of news Ingrid Ciprian-Matthews in an email to staff obtained by TVNewser. “In addition to her journalistic credentials and her loyalty to CBS News, Terri is a confident leader in the newsroom and has the respect of her colleagues at CBS News.”

A Round of Golf to Raise Money and Awareness After Sudden Death of CBS Newser

CBS Newsers turned out at the Bowling Green Golf Club in Oak Ridge, NJ today to raise funds for the American Heart Association in honor of longtime CBS News editor Tom McEneny.

McEneny, who’d worked for CBS News for 35 years mostly on “Evening News,” had dreamed of working on “60 Minutes.” His dream came true last April when he edited his first piece for the show. He died the next month of a heart attack.

CBS News chairman Jeff Fager, who played in the tournament, presented a check for $10,000 to Renee Helfenstein of the northern New Jersey chapter of American Heart Association. Also pictured, is Susan McEneny, Tom McEneny’s widow. In total, $17,000 was raised.
