CBS may replace Jeff Glor as 'CBS Evening News' anchor amid plummeting ratings: Report

CBS is reportedly mulling whether or not to replace Jeff Glor as anchor of "CBS Evening News."

According to a new Page Six report, after just six months at the helm of the network's nightly news program, Glor's plummeting ratings have CBS executives concerned about the direction of one of its most iconic entities.

The outlet reports that executives held an explosive meeting on Tuesday night during which CBS News president David Rhodes "unleashed" on Glor and the "CBS Evening News" producers.

"He said how disappointed and frustrated he is with how things have gone," a source told Page Six of the meeting.

Insiders point to changes to the producing team -- like Mosheh Oinounou stepping in for veteran producer Steve Capus as the show's executive producer in January -- as contributing factors to the program's overall decline in ratings.

"We're building a new team and going in a new direction, and that may not sit well with everyone," a CBS News executive explained. 

Though ratings during Glor's first week back in December grew after Pelley's bizarre sudden exit as anchor, they have since dropped from 7.1 million to 5.7 million, which is a 9 percent decline from last year's ratings. 

CBS News' decision to hire Glor was always considered a surprise, especially because "CBS Evening News" has been anchored by the likes of iconic news anchors like Walter Cronkite, Dan Rather and Katie Couric. 

Perhaps unsurprisingly, the network is standing firming behind its current "CBS Evening News" team, despite reports of growing concern behind the scenes.

"CBS News couldn’t be more excited about the direction that Jeff and Mosheh are taking the 'Evening News,'" a spokesperson for CBS News told Page Six in a statement. "The meeting as described never happened. What did happen was a discussion centered on editorial and production, not ratings, which is not unusual."
