Anchor Scott Pelley out at 'CBS Evening News,' according to multiple reports

The network is expect to make an announcement on Wednesday morning, the Times reported.

Pelley, 59, had been anchor of the "CBS Evening News" since June 2011, when he replaced Katie Couric. In February, Josh Elliott, who had been anchoring the network's online news platform CBSN, was bounced after saying during his newscast that he was being groomed for bigger things at the network and would be appearing less online.

As of this writing, the network's Facebook, Twitter and Instagram profiles all still feature Pelley's name or likeness in the profile image, bio or title of the page.

The 59-year-old Pelley, who has been with CBS for almost three decades, was named anchor of the evening news in 2011, succeeding Katie Couric. And CBS News stalwart 60 Minutes is operating with a thin regular correspondent corps; the untimely death of Bob Simon in early 2015 in a auto accident in Manhattan left a big hole.

White House Press Secretary offers weird explanation for meaning of 'covfefe'

The evening news won't be the same without Scott Pelley on CBS Evening News.

Pelley did not anchor the broadcast Tuesday, as it was announced he was on assignment for "60 Minutes".

Pelley has often been critical of the Trump White House.

Mason, 60, is the co-host of the Saturday edition of CBS This Morning and the network's senior national correspondent.

Penguins wary, Preds ready as Game 2 looms
Scott Wilson and Evgeni Malkin also scored for Pittsburgh, which won for the ninth time in these playoffs when being outshot. Three minutes later, the Rinne doll yielded a second own goal in as many games, this time off the skate of Vernon Fiddler.

The CBS news magazine is adding Oprah Winfrey as a contributor next season and will take on Megyn Kelly's new NBC program, which debuts Sunday.

A source said, "Pelley asked for the curtains of his office to be opened, so everyone in the news division could see, as the boxes from office were lined up outside with his Texas home address on them".

The AP story characterized "The CBS Evening News" as running "a distant third" to the other two. "I'm glad to accept this assignment with continuing gratitude".

Pelley's onscreen demeanor - "strict and steeling, disavowing both charm and irony" - was appropriate for the nation's mood in the wake of last decade's financial crisis, news consultant Andrew Tyndall told ABC.
