Former “Early Show” news anchor Jeff Glor has added a new role to his portfolio at CBS News. Glor will become the regular anchor of the Sunday edition of the “CBS Evening News.” The anchor role is in addition to his job as a special correspondent for “CBS This Morning,” which launches on Monday.
Glor is taking over–in part at least–for Russ Mitchell, who announced that he was leaving CBS to join an NBC affiliate in Cleveland. Mitchell anchored the “Evening News” on Saturday and Sunday. CBS has not named an anchor for the Saturday edition of the nightly news program.
Glor first joined CBS News in 2007 as a national correspondent for “The Early Show.” More information after the jump.
