Jeff Glor is scheduled to speak to an audience at the Buffalo Club on April 5 and possibly anchor “The CBS Evening News” from his hometown on the same night. But there were more speculative reports Wednesday and Thursday that questioned whether Glor’s days as the anchor of the prestigious newscast will last very long. Multiple media outlets reported that the Town of Tonawanda native may be relinquishing his anchor chair to “CBS This Morning” co-host Norah O’Donnell shortly after Susan Zirinsky officially becomes the new president of CBS News next week. The reports added that “nothing is definitive.” Of course, Glor has had to deal with speculation about his job security for several months because of the newscast’s declining ratings. This time, the reports may be fueled by timing. Zirinsky, who has been at CBS News for 46 years, is replacing David Rhodes as news president on March 1. Rhodes named Glor the anchor of “The CBS … [Read more...] about As job security questions swirl, Glor may come home to anchor ‘CBS Evening News’ April 5

As an estimated 1,000 lawsuits related to the 2016 flood continue to wend their way through federal court in Baton Rouge, CBS Evening News will tonight air an investigative report focusing on the plight of a Baton Rouge couple who, more than 18 months after the historic flood, have yet to complete rebuilding their home and are fighting the National Flood Insurance Program for more than $100,000 they say they are owed. The two-part report, which concludes Tuesday, will detail how Richard and Linda Brown filed suit against the NFIP after receiving just $62,000 on a $168,000 policy to repair their house, which was totally destroyed by the flood. The story goes on to explore how FEMA, which runs the NFIP, actually outsources most of the administration of the program to private insurance companies, which get paid from the same pot of money as flood victims. Some years, up to two-thirds of NFIP funding have gone to private insurance companies and the attorneys they hire to fight flood … [Read more...] about CBS News takes deep dive into one post-2016 flood lawsuit

USA Today reports 12 Democratic senators have sent a letter to FCC chairman Ajit Pai calling for an investigation of Sinclair, which owns or operates nearly 200 TV stations, including CNY Central in Syracuse and stations in Buffalo, Rochester and Albany.
