By Brian 

Katie Couric: “Rick Kaplan is a big personality with big ideas. Though I’ve never worked directly with him, I know Rick is an extraordinarily experienced producer who has exciting plans for our broadcast. I’m thrilled he has decided to come home to CBS News.”

Sean McManus: “Few broadcast journalists have a list of accomplishments and the history of success that Rick has had – the list is truly extraordinary. I’m very much looking forward to working with Rick and having the benefit of his vast experience and knowledge as we continue to build the best evening news broadcast at CBS News.”

Rick Kaplan: “I spent the first 10 years of my career at CBS News, including three years working on the ‘CBS Evening News with Walter Cronkite,’ so coming home to that broadcast, especially as executive producer, is particularly thrilling. Katie is an enormously talented journalist and broadcaster, and this is an extraordinary opportunity for us to grow the broadcast in every way.”
