    While I agree that he is a safe choice, I think Glor is a good choice.
    I've enjoyed his tenure as anchor of the weekend News (back under the EN name)
    and was excited when he was chosen as the newsreader of the final years of The Early Show.
    He's a great journalist but it'll take a lot more than enough to try to fill the gaping mistake of letting another great journalist, Scott Pelley, go from the broadcast and waiting more than five months to find his successor (even if one possibility was right under their noses).

    Also...if some of you say you have nothing against him, but then post something that clearly says otherwise...it's fair to say you kinda do have something against him. And like any of the fantasy choices would make a big wave in the ratings like it would on social media. CBS has never made higher than third for years either way and never will.
    Just saying.

    I also believe Glor is a good choice as well. He seems pleasant and versatile, he’s been groomed by CBS for better things. He’s done so many things internally: 60 Minutes Sports, pops up from time to time on CBS This Morning, does CBSN, and has done the weekend shifts for a number of years. The network is obviously going younger in order to make the broadcast appealing, I wonder if the show will somewhat evolve even more.

    I think the next closest person internally was going to be Josh Elliott, but he obviously screwed himself royally by ego.

    Personally, I think Ann Curry would have been suited, her strong journalistic personality would have been more suited at CBS News and it would have been great PR to give her another chance in the big leagues.

    Woo! Nickp's prediction from 4 months ago was actually correct! This must be a sign for something...

    I cannot staaaaaand David Muir - and that forest fire, and those horrendous winds, and that desperate woman's unforgettable cries for help, even when she knew that nothing could save those two desperate cats.

    Sorry to break this tread but I was looking at Demarco Morgan insta stories while he was anchoring CBSN, and he panned the newsroom. It appears that studio 47 is now closed off with a wall instead of the previous glass wall that was there before.
