[via press release from CBS]

BOB SCHIEFFER WILL SERVE AS INTERIM ANCHOR OF THE �CBS EVENING NEWS� DURING TRANSITION TO NEW BROADCAST

Bob Schieffer, CBS News� chief Washington correspondent and anchor of FACE THE NATION, will serve as the interim anchor of the CBS EVENING NEWS for a short transition period until the new format of the broadcast is launched, it was announced by Andrew Heyward, President, CBS News. Schieffer will begin those duties on Thursday, March 10 (6:30-7:00 PM, ET/PT).

Dan Rather announced in November that he will step down from the post the previous day, marking, to the day, an unprecedented 24 years as anchor of the broadcast.

Schieffer is broadcast journalism�s most experienced Washington reporter. He has been anchor and moderator of FACE THE NATION, the Network�s Sunday public affairs broadcast, since May 1991, and has covered Washington for CBS News for more than 30 years. Schieffer is one of the few broadcast or print journalists to have covered all four major beats in the nation's capital -- the White House, the Pentagon, the State Department and Capitol Hill. He has covered every presidential campaign and been a floor reporter at all of the Democratic and Republican National Conventions since 1972 and moderated the third and final 2004 presidential debate last October. Schieffer is a member of the Broadcasting & Cable Hall of Fame and is the recipient of the 2003 Paul White Award presented by the Radio-Television News Directors Association, which recognizes an individual�s lifetime contribution to electronic journalism, as well as six Emmys and two Sigma Delta Chi Awards. He has been a principal anchor for CBS News since 1973, when he was named anchor of the �CBS Sunday Night News,� and joined CBS News in 1969. Previously, Schieffer was a reporter at the Fort Worth Star-Telegram and later became a news anchor at WBAP-TV Dallas/Fort Worth.
