‘CBS Evening News with Scott Pelley’ Debuting in June

It’s official: “60 Minutes” veteran Scott Pelley will replace Katie Couric at the “CBS Evening News” anchor desk.

“Scott has it all. He has the experience, the credibility and he is among the very best reporters ever to work at CBS News,” said Jeff Fager, recently appointed CBS News chairman and executive producer of “60 Minutes.” “In more than two decades at CBS News, he has distinguished himself at every level, right up to his current role at ’60 Minutes,’ where his work has been incomparable. We like to think of CBS News as the ‘reporter’s network’ and I can’t think of anybody in this business better suited for the anchor chair than Scott.”

“I am delighted to join the terrific team at the ‘CBS Evening News,’” said Pelley.

Pelley joined CBS News as a reporter in 1989. The new “CBS Evening News with Scott Pelley” will debut on June 6th. Read more at TVNewser
