JEFF GLOR WILL ANCHOR THE “CBS EVENING NEWS” FROM BATTLEGROUND STATES FOR EXPANDED, ON-THE-GROUND COVERAGE OF CAMPAIGN 2018 BEGINNING OCT. 9

THE “CBS EVENING NEWS WITH JEFF GLOR” WILL FEATURE IN-DEPTH, ORIGINAL REPORTING OF KEY ISSUES; INTERVIEWS WITH VOTERS AND CANDIDATES; AND IMMERSIVE COVERAGE OF HOT-BUTTON ISSUES WITH “EYE ON AMERICA”

Jeff Glor will anchor the CBS EVENING NEWS from key battleground states, as part of an expanded look at critical issues during the final month of Campaign 2018, leading up to the midterm elections.

Starting next week, Glor will travel to states with competitive races for comprehensive, on-the-ground coverage. In addition to anchoring the CBS EVENING NEWS on location, Glor will also interview candidates and voters there about the issues that matter most to them. The broadcast will feature in-depth, original reporting from a team of CBS News correspondents across the country, plus long-form, immersive coverage in the “Eye on America” segment and the latest CBS News polling.

With control of the House and Senate at stake, our goal is to listen to voters and report on the issues that are most impacting their families and their communities,” said Mosheh Oinounou, executive producer of the CBS EVENING NEWS WITH JEFF GLOR. “The best way to do that is to get out of the studio and into the field.”

Midterms are such a fascinating way for Americans to engage. Whether it’s in the middle of the biggest city or the smallest town, we want to have open, honest, fair conversations with viewers, voters and candidates, now and for years to come,” said Glor. “We can’t wait to hit the road.”

The CBS EVENING NEWS will begin the expanded coverage next week on Tuesday, Oct. 9 with Glor anchoring from Phoenix, Ariz., a state with one of the country’s most closely watched Senate races. Glor will talk with Arizona voters about key topics, including the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.

The CBS EVENING NEWS WITH JEFF GLOR will also originate from Texas, Missouri and Florida this month as part of the expanded, on-the-ground coverage for Campaign 2018.

Mosheh Oinounou is the executive producer of the CBS EVENING NEWS WITH JEFF GLOR.
