Scott Pelley to Replace Katie Couric on CBS News

by at . Comments

Katie Couric's replacement on the CBS Evening News will be Scott Pelley, a veteran journalist and 60 Minutes correspondent, according to reports.

Pelley is the choice of CBS News Chairman Jeff Fager, who became Chairman in February on the condition he could decide who takes the desk.

He believes Scott is well-liked and respected by his bosses, and just as significantly, there really is no second choice who appeals to CBS bosses.

Couric is leaving the desk to do a syndicated show at the network, but may maintain a news presence. What do you think of her replacement?
