Jeff Glor Will Co-Host Saturday ‘CBS This Morning’

Jeff Glor is moving to morning news from evening news at CBS.

CBS News said Thursday that Glor, recently moved off a stint of “CBS Evening News,” would take up duties as co-host of the Saturday edition of “CBS This Morning” and also serve as a special correspondent.

He will start the new morning assignment on June 22, and will join co-hosts Dana Jacobson and Michelle Miller.

The new duties keep Glor at CBS News in a time of transition. The anchor, who had called  CBS News home for 12 years, was placed at “Evening News” under different management , and while his tenure was well received, the newscast fell further behind its NBC and ABC rivals. New CBS News President Susan Zirinsky has been in the midst of orchestrating a talent overhaul at the news division in an effort to make up ratings ground.

Norah O’Donnell has been named to take over “CBS Evening News” and is slated to do so sometime this summer. Glor signed off from the program May 10.

As part of his new role, Glor will begin a new, ongoing series for all CBS News broadcasts under the banner “Who We Are,” which will feature inspiring stories, CBS News said. He will also work with the CBS News investigative unit on original reporting and investigations.

“Jeff brings a humanity to his reporting and will be a perfect fit on ‘SATMO,’ as it is fondly called around the CBS Broadcast Center,” said Zirinsky, in a statement. “Jeff and Brian Applegate, executive producer of ‘CBS This Morning Saturday,’, have an extraordinary history together and have known each other for more than two decades. I am thrilled they can build on their creative partnership with Dana, Michelle and the entire team.”

Glor and Applegate worked together in both Syracuse and Boston.

Glor was a lead anchor on CBSN, CBS News’ 24/7 streaming news service, during its launch period, and has  served as anchor of the weekend editions of “CBS Evening News” on Saturday, in 2009 and 2010, and on Sunday, from 2012 to 2016. He anchored “The Early Show” in 2011.

 Before joining CBS News, Glor was the weekend evening news anchor and a weekday reporter for WHDH-TV in Boston and the co-anchor of WSTM-TV Syracuse’s 5:00 PM newscast and a reporter for the 11:00 PM newscast  as well as the morning news anchor.
