25 September 2016 7:26 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Nearly 30 years after she left NBC’s “Today,” Jane Pauley will return to a morning news anchor slot as the successor to Charles Osgood on “CBS Sunday Morning.”

Pauley has been a contributor to the show since 2014. “CBS Sunday Morning” typically airs long-form feature reporting in a signature style, a mix of lifestyle and personality features as well as in-depth takes on cultural trends and innovations in medicine, business and science.

Pauley is set to formally take over anchor duties on the Oct. 9 broadcast. She will be only the third anchor of the show to date.

Drone Strike: TV-News Outlets Gear Up With New Eyes in the Sky

22 September 2016 12:12 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Steve Harrigan was on the ground in Homosassa, Florida earlier this month to try to show Fox News viewers the extent of flooding damage caused by the hurricane known as Hermine. The best view of the havoc, however, really came from the air.

Fox News Channel used a drone – sometimes known in tech-junkie jargon as an “unmanned aerial system” – to get a bird’s-eye gaze of the rising waters. And the 21st Century Fox-owned news outlet isn’t alone. ABC News has tapped drones to help “Good Morning America” anchors like Ginger Zee and Amy Robach show off hidden Vietnamese caves and rare animals in Tanzania. CNN has already launched a new unit, called CNN Air, devoted to drone-captured footage. NBC News has utilized the flying devices to show viewers everything from the effects of earthquakes in Italy to floods in Louisiana, said Janelle Rodriguez, senior vice president of editorial for NBC News.

Martha Raddatz Named Co-Anchor of ABC’s ‘This Week with George Stephanopoulos’

22 January 2016 7:47 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

ABC News has formally named longtime correspondent Martha Raddatz as co-anchor of its Sunday morning program “This Week with George Stephanopoulos.”

Raddatz, ABC’s chief global affairs correspondent, has alternated in the “This Week” anchor chair with Stephanopoulos and has been a regular contributor to the public affairs program.

“Over the past several years the show has risen to great new heights with George, our chief anchor, at the helm, and with Martha playing a key role in anchoring and reporting for the program from Washington and from around the globe,” ABC News president James Goldston wrote in a memo to staffers announcing Raddatz’ appointment.

The personnel maneuvers take place after Stephanopoulos has taken on many more duties at ABC News. He is a co-host on morning show “Good Morning America” and also the news unit’s chief anchor, tasked with taking the desk when stories of national or global importance break. »

15 January 2016 7:16 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

For many Sunday-morning TV viewers, Charles Osgood has become a habit so ingrained that missing his “CBS Sunday Morning” would be like forgoing eggs and coffee. At some point in the not-too-distant future, however, the ritual of watching the veteran may come to a close.

CBS News and Osgood have begun discussing when he might leave the show, according to a person familiar with the situation. There is no set date when the newsman might step down, this person cautioned, though he is scheduled to be absent from the program for a few weeks due to knee surgery. Osgood’s negotiations were previously reported by the New York Daily News.

CBS declined to make executives available for comment.

Among the pool of potential successors would be Jane Pauley, the former “Today” anchor who joined the Sunday program as a contributor in 2014. No one has been signed as a new host of the program, »
