In Profile: O’Donnell, Rubenstein, Glor

By Chris Ariens 

CBS This Morning co-host Norah O’Donnell talks with Variety about her career path: “I thought I would stay in Washington and cover politics and maybe host a Sunday show. This was something unexpected.” After filling in on the show for a few days, she suddenly found herself getting an offer to step aboard permanently. Now, she works to balance a host of breaking stories and daily responsibilities with longer-term projects.

Billionaire philanthropist David Rubenstein talks with Washingtonian about his Bloomberg show which has attracted a cult following: In less than a year, Rubenstein already has a waiting list of public figures—CEOs mostly, with potentially some pop stars and a few politicians—keen for this treatment. The show’s opening credits feature B-roll of Rubenstein musing, “I don’t consider myself a journalist”—words that are then plastered across the screen in bad-boy graffiti.

Jeff Glor gives his first interview since being named the next CBS Evening News anchor to his hometown paper, The Buffalo News. How did he celebrate the news? “”I’m celebrating by changing a diaper and reading a book to my son,” Glor quipped.” He covered Hurricane Irma and the Vegas shooting while doing features this past summer. “I’ll let others assess that,” he said of whether he was auditioning for the newscast. “I was working as hard as I could, doing whatever I could doing stories that hopefully would make a difference. That’s always been what I’ve been focused on.”
