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.
