Glor has reported across the globe for virtually all CBS News broadcasts and digital platforms in his 10 years with the network. He has anchored numerous breaking news stories, including most recently in the field for Hurricane Irma and in the studio for the Las Vegas shootings.
“Jeff is a thoughtful, probing journalist with the versatility to anchor in any circumstance – from daily reporting to the most significant events of our time,” said Rhodes. “In his more than 10 years at CBS News, Jeff has earned the trust of viewers and his colleagues. He represents the best journalistic values and traditions that will carry the EVENING NEWS into a digital future.”
“CBS News has an extraordinary history that is meaningful to so many,” Glor said. “I am beyond grateful to continue to play a role in its future.”
Anthony Mason, the broadcast’s interim anchor, will continue as CBS News senior national correspondent and co-host of CBS THIS MORNING: SATURDAY.
The new broadcast, the CBS EVENING NEWS WITH JEFF GLOR, will launch later this year and feature regular contributions from a core team of correspondents. The program will continue to be produced by CBS News executive editor and CBS EVENING NEWS executive producer Steve Capus.
Glor, 42, joined CBS News in 2007 as a correspondent based in New York.
