Bob Schieffer took a moment at the end of Thursday’s CBS Evening News to make note of his one-year anniversary:
“Tomorrow marks my first anniversary as anchor of the CBS Evening News. I remember saying that first night that I was honored to be asked to do this job. I also stated the obvious: that I was not exactly a new face. In fact, mine is a well-worn face, but my greatest treasure is that so many of you have come to trust me over my nearly four decades at CBS.
I promised that first night that I would never take that trust for granted. And that is still my promise. I will always remember that your trust must be earned one story and one day at a time.
So, to our remarkable team here and so many of you out there, thank you for being so kind to me. I intend to celebrate this anniversary in the traditional way: I’m taking tomorrow off. Good night everyone. See you right here on Monday.”
