1 year into job for CBS’ Scott Pelley

- Associated Press - Wednesday, June 6, 2012

NEW YORK (AP) - Scott Pelley marks one year on the job Wednesday as anchor of the "CBS Evening News." And he's already got his eye on the top of the mountain.

Pelley says he's confident his broadcast will get to No. 1 in the ratings. That would be a big achievement at CBS, where the newscast has been third behind NBC and ABC since the late 1990s, through anchors Dan Rather, Bob Schieffer, Katie Couric and now Pelley.

He has a long way to go, but the trends are in his favor. Ratings are down at the other two newscasts over the past year, but have gone up for CBS.

Pelley said his first priority was to change the tone of the newscast.
