Daily News Headline 5/31/17

posted May 31, 2017, 6:39 AM by Nancy Berry
In the news this morning, CBS Evening News anchor Scott Pelley is leaving his post.  He has been the evening news anchor since 2011 when he replaced Katie Couric after her five-year run in the anchor seat.  CBS has not announced who will replace Pelley, who will work full time on 60 Minutes.  Pelley  has been consistently in 3rd place in the evening news ratings behind NBC and ABC.  Pelley's departure comes in the wake of CBS's announcement earlier this year that Oprah Winfrey will join the 60 Minutes team as a special contributor.
