WASHINGTON (AP) - Bob Schieffer’s last Sunday as host of CBS’ “Face the Nation” will be on May 31.

The veteran newsman, who announced his retirement last month, had said only that he would be leaving this summer. But summer’s coming early for Schieffer, who wants to relax for the warm weather months while CBS gives his successor, John Dickerson, the chance to settle in before the presidential campaign begins in earnest.

Schieffer, who is 78, hasn’t said what he will be doing after leaving as the network’s chief Washington correspondent.

But if he does appear on television again, one thing’s for sure. He said, “I’ll never work any place other than CBS.”
