CBS Evening News is the flagship nightly television news program of the American television network CBS. The network has broadcast this program since 1948, and has used the CBS Evening News title since 1963.

The CBS Evening News is currently anchored by Scott Pelley on weekdays and by Russ Mitchell on weekends. It is broadcast from the CBS Broadcast Center at 524 West 57 Street in New York City.[1]

Anchors

Douglas Edwards (1948–1962)

CBS began broadcasting news shows on Saturday nights, expanding to two nights a week in 1947. On May 3, 1948, Douglas Edwards began the CBS-TV News, a regular 15-minute nightly newscast. It aired every weeknight at 7:30 PM (ET), and was the first regularly scheduled television news program. The week's news stories were recapped Sunday night with Newsweek in Review. The name was later shortened to Week in Review and the show was moved to Saturday.[citation needed]

In 1950, the name of the nightly news was changed to Douglas Edwards with the News, and the following year, it became the first news program to be broadcast on both coasts, thanks to a new coaxial cable connection, Edwards started using the greeting "Good evening everyone, coast to coast."[2]

The program competed against the NBC's Camel News Caravan that was launched in 1949. Edwards attracted more viewers during the mid-1950s, but lost ground when Chet Huntley and David Brinkley were teamed up by NBC on the Huntley-Brinkley Report.[citation needed] In September 1955, Edwards was moved to 6:45 PM (ET), although some affiliates had the option of carrying a 7:15 PM (ET) edition.[citation needed]

On November 30, 1956, the show became the first to use the new technology of videotape; it was used to time delay the broadcast (which originated in New York City) for the western U.S.[3]

Walter Cronkite (1962–1981)

Walter Cronkite took over the anchor chair on April 16, 1962. On September 2, 1963, CBS Evening News became network television's second half-hour weeknight news broadcast, lengthened from its original 15 minutes, and telecast at 6:30PM ET. (The Huntley-Brinkley Report had been the first, by only a few months.) As before, some affiliates (including WCBS-TV in New York) had the option of carrying a 7:00PM ET edition, like NBC did with The Huntley-Brinkley Report and later ABC's World News. The networks stopped this practice after 1971, although some affiliates, mostly in larger markets, continued carrying the broadcasts at 7/6 Central via tape delay from 6:30/5:30. (The Atlanta, Ga. ABC affiliate, for example, shows ABC World News Tonight at 7:00 P.M. rather than 6:30, in order to make room for its daily one-hour broadcast of local news. This enables local viewers to watch both the CBS and ABC national news without having to record one of the broadcasts on VCR's or DVR's.)

The newscast broadcast in color for one evening on August 19, 1965,[4] and made the switch permanently on January 31, 1966.[5] Cronkite's 1968 editorial, declaring that the United States could only hope for a stalemate in Vietnam, is often credited with influencing Lyndon Johnson's decision to drop out of the Presidential race. "If I've lost Walter Cronkite ... [I]'ve lost Middle America", he stated.[6]

Under Cronkite, the CBS show began what would eventually become an eighteen-year period of dominating the nightly news ratings.[7] In the process, Walter Cronkite became "the most trusted man in America" in a Gallup Poll from that era, a status that had first been fostered by his coverage of the JFK Assassination.[8] With the retirement of NBC's Huntley in 1970, Cronkite moved into the ratings lead and held it through the decade. Cronkite's image was further bolstered by his enthusiastic support for the space program, culminating with his anchoring of CBS News' coverage of the Apollo 11 Moon landing in 1969.

In late 1972, Cronkite prodded the show's producers to feature two nights of lengthy explanation of the Watergate scandal, which had been extensively covered by The Washington Post but had not received major national coverage. After the first half of the report, shown on a Friday, ran for 14 minutes – half of the air time of the broadcast – White House officials complained to CBS founder William S. Paley. Monday's report was aired, but only for eight minutes.[9]

Walter Cronkite retired from the broadcast March 6, 1981, nine months before his 65th birthday, under a CBS policy requiring mandatory retirement at 65.[citation needed] CBS correspondent Dan Rather, 49, replaced Cronkite the following Monday.

Dan Rather (1981–1993)

Dan Rather, a CBS news correspondent since the early 1960s and a 60 Minutes reporter, took over the program on March 9, 1981, but was not as well-received as an anchorman as Cronkite had been — by 1990, the CBS Evening News was in third place behind ABC and NBC.[7]

Concerns about excessive liberalism in the media were frequently leveled at Rather and CBS in general.[10][11][12] Some of these concerns dated from Rather's position as White House correspondent for CBS News during the Nixon administration. An interview related to the Iran–Contra affair with then-Vice President George H.W. Bush where the two engaged in a shouting match on live television did little to dispel those concerns.[13] Rather apologized for his behavior in statements the following day.

On September 1, 1986, amidst turmoil at CBS News and a brewing battle on CBS's Board of Directors for control of the company, Rather closed his broadcast with the word "Courage." He repeated it the following night, while on September 3, he said what he thought was the Spanish word for "courage", pronouncing it "cur-AH-he". In the face of media attention and pleas from his staff, Rather abandoned the signoff on September 8.[14]

On September 11, 1987, Dan Rather marched off the camera in anger when it appeared that CBS Sports' coverage of a U.S. Open tennis semifinal match was going to cut into time allotted for the Evening News.[citation needed] Rather was in Miami covering the visit to the city by Pope John Paul II. When the tennis match ended at 6:32 PM, Rather was nowhere to be found. Six minutes of dead air followed before he returned to the broadcast position – surprisingly, nearly half of the audience watched and waited. Rather later suggested[citation needed] that his intention was to force the sports department to fill up the entire half-hour so that he wouldn't have to truncate their elaborately-planned coverage of the papal visit.

Demonstrators from AIDS Coalition to Unleash Power (ACT UP) broke into the CBS News studio on January 23, 1991, and chanted "Fight AIDS, not Arabs" during the show's introduction. One protester was seen on camera just as Rather began speaking. Rather immediately called for a commercial break and later apologized to viewers about the incident.[15]

Dan Rather & Connie Chung (1993–1995)

From June 1, 1993, to May 18, 1995, Connie Chung co-anchored the broadcast with Rather. Chung normally co-anchored in the studio with Rather, but sometimes one appeared on location, while the other remained in the studio. Although Rather never said so publicly, CBS News insiders said he did not approve of her appointment.[16]

Dan Rather (1995–2005)

Rather interviews an IOM worker at the Sultan Iskandar Muda Air Force Base in Indonesia on January 3, 2005, following the 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake and tsunami.

The newscast returned to a solo anchor format in 1995 with Rather continuing as his role as anchor.

At age 73, Dan Rather retired from the Evening News on March 9, 2005, exactly 24 years after succeeding Cronkite. Rather left the anchor position amidst controversy and a credibility crisis over reports broadcast in the heat of the 2004 Presidential election campaign. The report was a September 2004 60 Minutes Wednesday segment questioning President George W. Bush's Texas Air National Guard record. Conservatives challenged the authenticity of the Killian documents used for the report. A number of bloggers analyzed scans of the documents, and rapidly concluded the documents were forgeries. Subsequently, CBS commissioned an independent inquiry into the matter and several CBS staffers were fired or asked to resign.

After his departure from the anchor chair, Rather continued to work on other CBS News programming as a correspondent. On June 20, 2006, CBS News President Sean McManus announced that Rather and CBS had agreed to end his 44-year career with the network.

Bob Schieffer (2005–2006)

On March 10, 2005, Rather was succeeded on an interim basis by longtime CBS News correspondent Bob Schieffer. Schieffer has hosted the CBS News Sunday-morning political program Face the Nation, based in Washington D.C, since 1991.

At the time Schieffer took over, it was uncertain how long he would host the broadcast; also uncertain was whether it would retain its current shape or instead adopt some kind of multiple-host or other alternative format.

Under Rather in the years leading up to his retirement, the show trailed its rivals at ABC and NBC by a fairly large margin. John Roberts, the White House correspondent and Scott Pelley, his predecessor in that position, were often mentioned as possible successors to Rather when he retired.[17] Jim Axelrod took over as White House correspondent when Roberts later left for CNN, once it became clear to him that he would not become the next face of CBS News.

In the months following Rather's departure, the program came to emphasize live exchanges between Schieffer and the various CBS News correspondents around the world. In contrast to traditional network-news practice, these exchanges are unrehearsed as part of an effort to make the language on the broadcast sound more "natural".[18] Viewership levels increased over this period of time. It was the only news broadcast to gain viewers during 2005. In November 2005, CBS announced that Evening News executive producer Jim Murphy would be replaced by Rome Hartman, who took the helm over in January 2006.

Schieffer led the CBS Evening News to become the #2 evening news broadcast, beating out ABC World News Tonight. The death of Peter Jennings in 2005 put the ABC News division in flux. When Charles Gibson was appointed as anchor at World News Tonight, ABC regained much of its momentum to take back the #2 spot. Bob Schieffer's final broadcast of the newscast occurred on August 31, 2006. Russ Mitchell filled in for the following two nights (September 1 and 4), after which he was succeeded on September 5 by Katie Couric.

During this time, Schieffer commuted to New York, where he anchored the Evening News, from Washington D.C., his home and the location of Face the Nation.[citation needed]

Katie Couric (2006–2011)

CBS Evening News logo used from September 2006 to May 2009

On December 1, 2005, it was reported that Katie Couric, host of NBC's Today morning show, was considering CBS' offer to take over the CBS Evening News. On April 1, 2006, Couric officially signed the deal to become the anchor of the CBS Evening News. On April 5, 2006, Couric announced on NBC's The Today Show that she would be stepping down as anchor of the show, a position she held for fifteen years.[19]

Couric began working at CBS News in July 2006. During her first broadcast as anchor on September 5, 2006, new graphics, a new set, and a new theme composed by Academy Award winning composer James Horner were introduced; similar graphics and music would be used in other CBS News productions such as Up to the Minute, CBS Morning News, and The Early Show throughout the month of October. A new opening title sequence was designed, with Walter Cronkite providing the voiceover, replacing Wendell Craig unless a temporary voice-over was needed. Morgan Freeman started doing the voice over on January 4, 2010. The program also debuted a new feature called "Free Speech" in which different Americans, ranging from a well known national figure to an average person, would provide a news commentary.[20] However, after overwhelmingly negative reaction, the "Free Speech" segment was discontinued.

On March 8, 2007, The New York Times reported that executive producer Rome Hartman was being replaced by television news veteran Rick Kaplan. Hartman's last production aired on March 7. Kaplan comes to the CBS Evening News after stints at MSNBC, CNN, and ABC's World News Tonight with Peter Jennings.

On April 4, 2007, Couric did a one-minute commentary about the importance of reading in a piece substantially lifted from a Wall Street Journal column by Jeffrey Zaslow. Couric claimed that she remembered her first library card, but the words were all from Zaslow's column. Once revealed, it was determined that a producer had actually written the piece. What made the plagiarism especially striking was the personal flavor of the video—now removed from the CBS Web site—that began, "I still remember when I got my first library card, browsing through the stacks for my favorite books." [21]

Katie Couric in November 2007.

Much of the rest of the script was stolen from the Journal. Zaslow said at the time that CBS has "been very gracious and apologetic, and we at the Journal appreciate it." [22] This is considered double plagiarism, the producer who wrote the piece copied from someone else for Couric and for the anchor who claimed the words were hers when they were not.[23][24] The producer responsible for Couric's piece, Melissa McNamara, was fired hours after the Journal contacted CBS News to complain.[22][25] The network promised changes in its procedures.[26]

On August 27, 2008, MediaBistro wrote a piece about the Big Three network newscasts, praising Couric's CBS Evening News for extensive reporting that had, to its eyes, content better than its rivals.[27] Another critic from MarketWatch praised Couric's recent work and said that people should watch out for her this 2009.[28] That didn't stop from there, Tom Shales, a Washington Post writer praised Couric as a warmer, more benevolent presence than her two competitors; something that she brought to the program nearly 16 years of goodwill from doing "Today" and becoming America's sweetheart, or very close to it, and that goodwill is still there. He went on to say that viewers may find bad news less discomforting and sleep-depriving as Couric gives it to them. It's news you can warm up to. He also added that that doesn't mean she tries to sugarcoat or prettify grim realities. According to Shales, "The CBS Evening News" may be a more hospitable, welcoming sort of place than its competitors. He concluded by stating that it's naive to think that viewers choose their news anchor based solely on strict journalistic credentials, though Couric's do seem to be in order, whatever the Katie haters may say.[29]

The CBS Evening News with Katie Couric won the 2008 and 2009 Edward R. Murrow Award for best newscast. In September 2008, Couric interviewed Republican Vice Presidential nominee Sarah Palin, earning respect from a MarketWatch critic for asking tough questions.[30]

On May 18, 2009, the newscast's graphics were overhauled, using a blue and red color scheme with web-influenced motifs and layouts. The new graphics design feature a look influenced by the graphics CBS used during the 2008 presidential election coverage.[31]

Ratings during Couric's period as anchor have fluctuated, seemingly improving at times, but also posting historic lows—going back to at least the 1991-92 season.[32] Despite receiving awards, positive critiques, and 'overhauled' on-air presentation, the newscast remains mired in third place—behind NBC Nightly News and ABC World News.[33]

Couric had been the only solo female news anchor in the United States from September 5, 2006, until December 21, 2009, when Diane Sawyer joined Couric as the second female evening news anchor, as she took over for Charles Gibson, who retired as anchor of ABC's World News with Charles Gibson.[34]

In 2009, CBS News revived its "CBS Reports" brand for "CBS Reports: Children of the Recession," a critically acclaimed multi-part series. The second installment, "CBS Reports: Where America Stands" aired in January 2010.

On April 3, 2011, The Associated Press reported that Couric would be leaving her anchor post at CBS Evening News when her contract expired on June 3.[35] Couric later confirmed her departure to People, citing a desire for "a format that will allow (her) to engage in more multi-dimensional storytelling."[36] On Friday May 13, 2011, Couric announced that the following Thursday, May 19, would be her last broadcast.

I think the audience can tell the difference between someone who is a brilliant reader of the teleprompter, and someone who has the experience and who has been in the field, who has covered the stories and knows what they're doing."

—Pelley in 2004,[17] about his qualifications as anchor.

Scott Pelley (2011–present)

Scott Pelley in 2007

Scott Pelley, who in December 2004 publicly commented about his qualifications for the job when Rather was leaving,[17] was called the front-runner to replace Couric by The New York Times. [37] On May 3, 2011 CBS officially confirmed that Pelley would replace Couric on the CBS Evening News in June. Harry Smith was the interim anchor until Pelley's tenure started on June 6, 2011.[38][39][40] On said date, Pelley made his first appearance on the program. The news graphics were subtly updated, the American flag background on the news set (used since the 2008 elections) was replaced by a replica of the globe fixture during the Cronkite era, and the James Horner theme was replaced by the 1987-91 theme used during the Rather era.

Reviews for the new program have been mostly positive.[citation needed] The program's ratings have also increased since Pelley took over.[41]

Weekend editions

CBS News National Correspondent Russ Mitchell is the current weekend anchor of CBS Evening News which airs on Saturday at 6:30/5:30 p.m. ET/CT, and Sunday at 6:00/5:00 p.m. ET/CT. Weekend newscasts are often pre-empted for CBS Sports telecasts, most notably coverage of the National Football League. However, an anchor will deliver updates during a break in the action if major news develops. Russ Mitchell and Bob Schieffer are primary substitutes for Scott Pelley on the weekday editions, and Senior Business Correspondent Anthony Mason and Up to the Minute and CBS Morning News host Betty Nguyen substitute for Russ Mitchell on the weekend editions.

High definition

On Monday, July 28, 2008, the CBS Evening News began broadcasting in high definition, becoming the third national newscast, behind NBC Nightly News and News Hour with Jim Lehrer to do so. In addition, 60 Minutes started broadcasting in HD in September, with the remainder of CBS News programming to follow by the end of 2009.[42]

Radio simulcast

A portion of the CBS Evening News is simulcast weekdays on some CBS radio stations. For example, KCBS-AM and KFRC-FM in San Francisco, Calif. simulcast the live television broadcast from 3:31 to 3:38 PM PT.

Broadcasts outside the U.S.

CBS Evening News is shown on Sky News to viewers in Europe, Africa, Middle East and Asia at 12.30 AM & 5.30 AM GMT. In Australia, the bulletin is shown at 11.30 AM Monday to Saturday, and at 12.30 PM on Sundays on Sky News Australia. In New Zealand, Sky News broadcasts live CBS Evening News starting 1:30 PM Local Time. In Mexico, Guatemala and El Salvador, CBS Evening News is broadcast on American Network.

CBS is not shown outside the Americas on a channel in its own right. However, CBS News is shown for a few hours a day on satellite channel Orbit News in Europe, Africa and the Middle East. In the Philippines it is shown on Q, Mondays to Fridays at 1:00 PM (PST) and Saturdays & Sundays at 12:45 PM via satellite, immediately after Balitanghali, but it ceased airing on March 31, 2010 when Q went off the air for the celebration of the Holy Week.

CBS Evening News was broadcast live on ATV World in Hong Kong daily until January 1, 2009, when ATV ceased broadcasting CBS Evening News and its sister program, 60 Minutes; the latter being only temporarily. The broadcast of Late Show with David Letterman has also been stopped. As of September 2010, only "60 Minutes" continues to broadcast.

Belize's Tropical Vision Limited occasionally airs CBS Evening News as a substitute for its more regularly carried NBC Nightly News on Saturdays and occasionally during the week.
