He'll also oversee '48 Hours' and CBS News creative look

CBS News has upped longtime “60 Minutes” director Rob Klug to exec director of production, overseeing “60 Minutes” and fellow Eye newsmag “48 Hours.”

In the new post, Klug will also supervise the overall creative look and style of CBS News alongside CBS News chairman Jeff Fager and CBS News prexy David Rhodes. In an email to staff on Wednesday, Fager wrote that Klug had already been working closely on aspects of various CBS News productions.

He credited Klug with the idea of putting a global map behind the anchor desk of “The CBS Evening News.”
