> “This is going to be a daunting process. We’re building a unit from the ground up. But challenges like this are why you get up in the morning.”

> “The CBS Evening News is known for its tradition of journalism. It’s awesome to be part of that. I’m honored and thrilled. I was comfortable with my jobs in sports. But this was a knock-your-socks-off offer.”

> “I’m going to miss sports, especially the friendships. And I’ll miss the storytelling on ‘Real Sports.’ But it was time for a change.”

> “There is a great buzz around the ‘Evening News.’ You can just feel the creative energy. Honestly, I’m re-energized by this.”
