Carter Evans has been named a Los Angeles-based correspondent at CBS News, TVNewser reports.
Evans has been working as a freelance correspondent for the network and for KCBS, the CBS O&O in Los Angeles, in recent months. Earlier this month, he was caught in the crossfire of the Christopher Dorner shootout in Big Bear.
In a memo to staffers announcing the news, CBS News president David Rhodes cited Evans’ reporting on the Dorner story, noting “he always seems to be working when no one else is around.”
Evans is married to former KTTV entertainment reporter Courtney Friel.
