First on TVNewser: Is Mitch Weitzner plotting a return to CBS News?
He was “paraded around the newsroom” yesterday, a trusted tipster says. He could become Rick Kaplan‘s #2 on the CBS Evening News.

Weitzner is currently the executive producer of CNBC’s monthly doc “Business Nation.” He spent 22 years at CBS before moving to CNBC recently, and he’s “well-liked and respected” at the Eye.

“He’s the top choice to replace Bill Owens, who is going to be senior broadcast producer at 60 Minutes,” the tipster says.

Owens became the senior broadcast producer of the CBS Evening News in Jan. 2006
