Jeff Glor has been named anchor of the Sunday edition of the CBS EVENING NEWS. Glor was named Special Correspondent for CBS THIS MORNING in November 2011 and he will continue in that role.

Previously, Glor served as News Anchor of “The Early Show” since January 2011. From 2009-2010, he was anchor of the Saturday edition of the CBS Evening News and a national correspondent for all CBS News broadcasts. He joined CBS News in 2007 as a national correspondent for “The Early Show.”

While at CBS News, Glor has covered a number of major domestic and international stories. In 2011, he reported live from Norway on the twin terror attacks that rocked the country in July, and in September he won an Emmy award for his “CBS Sunday Morning” report, “Paving the Way,” a profile of the decaying Rust Belt steel town of Braddock, Pennsylvania and Mayor John Fetterman’s efforts to restore it.

Report: CBS ‘Early Show’ Revamp Plan With Charlie Rose And Gayle King Makes Competitors Smile

Folks at ABC are “doing a happy dance” over word that CBS is about to remake The Early Show into a Morning Joe-like ensemble gabfest with Charlie Rose and Gayle King joining current co-hosts Erica Hill and Jeff Glor, The New York Times says. The plan indicates that the network is abandoning any hope of overtaking ABC’s Good Morning America or NBC’s Today in the ratings, and are settling instead for the cachet of being a hard-news alternative — which appeals to CBS’ older demo. CBS hasn’t decided whether to stick with the Early Show name, and it seems there’s no role for another co-host, Chris Wragge. The revamped show would have a regular group of contributors with Rose guiding things at 7 AM, and King taking charge at 8. CBS execs can’t be pleased with the way The Times framed their plans: The paper says that the industry’s view ranges “from skeptical to downright dismissive” and describes Rose as “a mainstay on the Manhattan cocktail party circuit.”
