CBS Evening News anchor Jeff Glor (above) is reportedly on the hot seat over ratings
CBS Evening News anchor Jeff Glor is reportedly on the hot seat with his bosses over sagging ratings just six months into his tenure.
David Rhodes, CBS News president, called a meeting with Glor and his producers on Tuesday and 'unleashed on the team' over the broadcast losing nearly 1.5million viewers since Glor took over in December, an insider told Page Six.
The network denied the account in a statement, saying 'the meeting as described never happened. What did happen was a discussion centered on editorial and production, not ratings, which is not unusual.'
'CBS News couldn’t be more excited about the direction that Jeff and Mosheh are taking the "Evening News",' the statement said, referring to the show's executive producer Mosheh Oinounou, who joined in January.
