By A.J. Katz Comment

During his final week as CBS Evening News anchor, Jeff Glor told viewers: “In the future, I will have far more to share with all of you. It will be great, I promise.”

Well, it appears Glor will continue to share stories at CBS News, as the network has named him the next CBS This Morning:Saturday co-host, joining Michelle Miller and Dana Jacobson on the broadcast, beginning June 22.

Glor will replace Anthony Mason, who recently moved to the weekday version of CTM with Tony Dokoupil and Gayle King.

CBS News president and senior executive producer Susan Zirinsky announced Glor’s new roles this afternoon.

“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,” Zirinsky said 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 added: “I’m looking forward to working closely with Brian [Applegate] again. The Saturday broadcast is a gem. Brian and his team have established a destination program for news, culture and music. I can’t wait to work with Michelle Miller and Dana Jacobson. I’m also honored to follow in Anthony Mason’s footsteps, who is a writer, host, and colleague I’ve learned from for a long time.”

The network has also named Glor a CBS News special correspondent, reporting feature stories and investigative reports for the network.

Glor was named anchor of the CBS Evening News in late 2017, and his first broadcast as anchor on a permanent basis was December 4 2017.

His final broadcast as Evening News anchor was on May 10.

He’s been a jack of all trades at the network, previously anchoring CBS’ The Early Show, as well as the weekend edition of the Evening News. He had also reported for CBS Sunday Morning, Showtime’s 60 Minutes Sports, and occasionally filled in on CBS This Morning.

Glor was the original anchor for CBS News’ streaming service CBSN when it launched in November 2014.

He had anchored countless special reports over his 18 months at CBS Evening News anchor, and took the broadcast out of the studio on many occasions. He led CBS News coverage from Vietnam for the U.S.-North Korea Summit back in February, and reported from Israel in May of last year. There was his interview with French President Emmanuel Macron, an  exclusive sit-down with VP Pence after the 2019 State of the Union, and his June 2018 interview with President Trump from his golf course in Scotland, where POTUS told him that he held Vladimir Putin“personally responsible” for meddling in the 2016 presidential election.

Glor joined CBS News in 2007 as a national correspondent.
