Bob Schieffer Winding Down at CBS

Recently, in an interview with TV Guide’s Stephen Battaglio, CBS’ Bob Schieffer acknowledged that his days with the Tiffany Network are numbered.  

In the interview, Mr. Battaglio asked if this would be Mr. Schieffer’s last presidential cycle.

Mr. Schieffer responded: 

It probably is. I’ve always left that as something of a question mark. I’m going to stay for sure through the inauguration. Quite frankly, I don’t know what I’m going to do after that. I’ll have some sort of relationship with CBS. But I think Inauguration Day is probably going to be my last in the role I have now. I’ve always taken it a year or so at a time, depending on how I feel. There was one point [where] I thought I would retire at 70. But they asked me to stay and I was feeling good. I’m going to keep doing what I’m doing through most of next year and at least through the inauguration. Then after that we’ll kind of figure out where we go from there.
