O'Donnell will replace Jeff Glor in the summer, and the evening newscast will shift from NY to Washington, D.C., in the fall. Her outstanding reporting, incisive interviews and dedication to the truth will distinguish the CBS Evening News every night... O'Donnell will also continue as a contributing correspondent for "60 Minutes".
For the very near future, CBS This Morning will continue on with its current trio of Gayle King, Norah O'Donnell and John Dickerson, but that will all change on Monday, May 20. "I'm going to give this everything I've got", O'Donnell said after King announced the move.
The moves represent the first big bet by Susan Zirinsky, who took over as president of CBS News in March, to revive a storied news brand.
The change of venue "adds to the importance and stature of the broadcast and will give CBS News unique access to top lawmakers, whose decisions have a profound impact on all Americans", Zirinsky said.
Dickerson, a preeminent journalist and author who has delivered ground-breaking political reporting with depth and perspective throughout his career, will join 60 Minutes, the most respected news program in the country, as a correspondent.

CBS "Evening News" anchor Jeff Glor has been removed from his post amid a reshuffle at the network.
Norah is one of the leading journalists of our time. CBS News recently named a new executive producer for the program, Diana Miller.
CBS News unveiled anchor changes at two of its best known programs Monday morning, a radical maneuver that underscores how its programs have fallen behind rivals at a time of heightened competition. She will continue to be a contributing correspondent for "60 Minutes".
"We are grateful to Jeff Glor for his award-winning work and his commitment to both his colleagues and to our viewers", Zirinsky said.
The plans for this talent shuffle started to leak out months ago.
