Jeff Glor signed off From CBS Evening News with a message tonight thanking the staff and wishing his successor luck.
“As we leave here tonight, I just want to say thanks,” Glor said. “This is a short broadcast, but a long game. Through it all, the people who put on the evening news remain committed.”
“This program will be moving to Washington D.C. in the coming months. I wish Norah O’Donnell the best of luck, though she won’t need it because of all the people backing her up. So I’d like to use the time I have left, on this night, to recognize them. Their hours are long and unpredictable. Their family and friends are unfailingly patient. I’m awed every day by their dedication to writing the first draft of history and telling America’s story. I’m awed by their grace. So I thank them, and you. I will see you soon. Good night.”
