Schieffer Symposium news: Pauley joining CBS

What do good newshounds do? They break news, which is exactly what Bob Schieffer did last night during his 10th annual Schieffer Symposium on the News at Texas Christian University.


The news? Guest panelist Jane Pauley, longtime NBC journalist, was joining CBS as a contributor for CBS News Sunday Morning.
Noting that Pauley has just released a book titled Your Life Calling: Reimagining the Rest of Your Life, Schieffer said “She is reinventing herself and is coming to work at CBS.”

Pauley, 63, spent 13 years as co-host of the Today Show.
Prior to the symposium, the CBS Evening News with Scott Pelley was broadcast live from the Bob Schieffer College of Communication.
Panelists on the symposium were Washington Post reporter Bob Woodward, columnist Peggy Noonan Pelley and Pauley.

Much of the discussion centered the state of the news business and there was some good news for the first time in several years, according to the panelists.

The Washington Post, acquired by Amazon.com founder Jeff Bezos for $250 million, is hiring 36 people, according to Woodward. And Pelly noted that viewership among the traditional evening news shows has grown recently to 25 million, up from 23 million. - Robert Francis
