Lester Holt’s ‘NBC Nightly News’ Gets Studio Update – and a Glass Peacock

Lester Holt’s ‘NBC Nightly News’ Gets Studio Update – and a Glass Peacock
Most people who watch “NBC Nightly News” expect to see Lester Holt holding forth on his own. Starting tonight, he has a silent guest: a glass peacock sculpture that will be suspended from the studio ceiling above him.

The transparent avian is one facet of a new setting for the NBC newscast, which has been locked in a months-long ratings battle with ABC’s “World News Tonight.”

The updated Studio 3A, which is housed in NBCUniversal’s New York corporate headquarters at 30 Rockefeller Center, will feature 632 square feet of Led video tiles as well as set-ups for different anchor, correspondent and guest positions. The studio will be a shared, working space with MSNBC – in keeping with its past function. The open studio also provides a look into the active NBC News and MSNBC newsroom.

CBS News President Tells Staff 'Evening News' Anchor Transition Didn't Go Smoothly, Hurt Morale

In late May, it came out that after six years as anchor of the CBS Evening News, Scott Pelley would be vacating the chair.

In an employee town hall Thursday morning, CBS News president David Rhodes was asked if he thinks the rocky transition has hurt company morale. 

"I absolutely do. And I'm concerned about it," he said, according to someone who viewed the event. "Transitions are difficult. We've had some very smooth ones while I've been here, and this one wasn't one of the smoothest. And I'm concerned about that. It didn't go the way that I wanted it to...

Scott Pelley Signs Off ‘CBS Evening News’: ‘Goodbye, and — Good Luck’

Scott Pelley Signs Off ‘CBS Evening News’: ‘Goodbye, and — Good Luck’
Scott Pelley could have spent his last stint behind the anchor desk on “The CBS Evening News” looking back. Instead, he chose to set his gaze forward.

Pelley, who succeeded Katie Couric in the role in 2011, spent little time talking to viewers about the decision to have him step down Friday evening as he delivered headlines about a collision involving a U.S. ship near Japan and introduced segments featuring correspondents like Nancy Cordes, David Martin, and Erin Moriarty. But the venerable evening newscast devoted a good chunk of its 20-plus on-air minutes to a report showing Pelley in Syria working on behalf of “60 Minutes,” where he will now be spending the bulk of his time. And Pelley tipped his cap to CBS News staffers around the world who supplied so much of the reportage that filled the program — and who would continue to contribute to the show after he was gone.

Network Newscasts Head to D.C. Area in Response to Shooting

Network newscasts hastily made plans to originate from Washington, D.C. on Wednesday in response to the shooting of House Majority Whip Steve Scalise during a baseball practice in Alexandria, Va.

Scott Pelley will anchor the “CBS Evening News” from Washington tonight and the program will expand to an hour to accommodate coverage of the shooting that left five people wounded and sent Scalise to the hospital for surgery after being shot in the hip. He was in critical condition but the wound was not life-threatening, officials said.

The gunman, identified in published reports as James T. Hodgkinson III, 66, of Illinois, died after a shootout with police that left two officers wounded.

Who Should CBS News Consider for Open Anchor Chair at ‘Evening News’?

Who Should CBS News Consider for Open Anchor Chair at ‘Evening News’?
CBS can always find someone to sit in the anchor chair at “CBS Evening News.” But really filling it? That’s not so easy.

It’s no secret that the network evening-news programs are not the titans they once were, but they snare a viewership some primetime programs would kill to have. So when CBS’ desire to move Scott Pelley to a full-time role at “60 Minutes” and out of “CBS Evening News” became known last week, speculation over his successor began immediately.

CBS has a bevy of candidates in-house, but many of them are attached to programs making strides in the ratings. And some seemingly obvious candidates — CNN’s Anderson Cooper or Jake Tapper, for example — are under contract elsewhere. Here are names the network might consider.

Anthony Mason: Tapped as the interim anchor for “CBS Evening News,” he brings experience working overseas, covering business and talking about music on the weekend edition of “CBS This Morning.”
