Jane Pauley To Join CBS News As Contributor To ‘Sunday Morning’

Jane Pauley Join CBS News Contributor

Former “Today” anchor Jane Pauley has agreed to become a contributor to CBS News’ “Sunday Morning.” The news was disclosed at the start of a panel held as part of an annual symposium held at Texas Christian University’s Schieffer School of Journalism by “Face the Nation” anchor Bob Schieffer.

Pauley may be best known for her 13-year tenure as co-anchor of NBC’s “Today,” where she held a seat from 1976 to 1989 alongside Tom Brokaw and Bryant Gumbel. She has also served as a host of NBC’s “Dateline” and as a daytime talk-show host.

‘We’re really, we’re really really happy to have you,” Schieffer said during the panel, according to a transcript provided by CBS NEws. “And I can’t think of a better place for you to tell a story. Because you’re a great storyteller – and Sunday Morning is one of my favorite, favorite broadcasts.”

A date for Pauley’s first appearance on the program could not be immediately determined.

    She only has to do one story a week. Shouldn’t be too stressful.

    Jane Pauley will be perfect for CBS Sunday Morning. It’s the best news show on TV and Jane is one of the most relatable, likable, and honest reporters out there.

    Jane Pauley? Isn’t she like too-old? And didn’t the pressures of being a big time news personality and celebrity last time aggravate her bi-polar disorder until she almost went full blown nuts? Doesn’t CBS know any younger women? It’s not like they have to be real journalists anymore.
