Confirmed: Harry Smith Joining NBC News
As first reported at tvnewser.com, Smith has been with CBS News for 25 years, is leaving the network. In a note to the staff, obtained by TVNewser, CBS News president David Rhodes writes, “Harry Smith has been a fixture here at CBS News for a generation — he joined us in Dallas in 1986 — but today he’s decided to move on.”
Late last year, Smith was part of a shuffling of anchors at “The Early Show.” The team of Smith, Maggie Rodriguez and Dave Price was moved out, as Erica Hill, Chris Wragge, Marysol Castro and Jeff Glor took over.
At NBC News Smith will be a part of the new primetime news magazine show anchored by Brian Williams. That show is scheduled to debut this fall.
