Report: Scott Pelley out as anchor of CBS Evening News

Scott Pelley will no longer anchor the CBS Evening News, people with knowledge of the situation told Page Six on Tuesday.

Pelley is on assignment for 60 Minutes and not in New York, and while he's gone, his office is being cleared out, Page Six reports. Pelley has been in the anchor chair since 2011, but will be moved permanently to 60 Minutes, the sources said. One person from CBS News told Page Six that Pelley and CBS News President David Rhodes "don't get on," and another said "there's always been friction" between the two. No replacement has been selected yet. CBS News did not respond to Page Six's request for comment.
