Bob Schieffer’s first evening news broadcast may have been a preview of what Les Moonves has in mind for the future. CBS Evening News viewers “saw a more direct interaction between anchor and reporter,” says. “Some correspondents spoke with Schieffer directly during their broadcast, and others broke their segments up, splicing interviews with field broadcasts and in-studio explanatory reports.”
