Another shift in the TV-news landscape today, as Harry Smith–the former anchor of CBS’s beleaguered Early Showdeparts for NBC News, where he will work on Brian Williams’s as-yet untitled primetime newsmagazine. The glossy allure of new projects (a new prime-time show luring talent like Mr. Smith, a new talk show for Katie Couric) just can’t hold up to the dubious lures of ever-struggling CBS News!

  1. Willis Brown says:

    Harry Smith was one of the best over-all talents at CBS News. You can see this in the recent reporting he was doing from Egypt, Libya and the Tsunami struck areas of Japan, all of it done following the ┬ácompletely ungracious way he and his colleagues at the Early Show were treated. That program is toast (no pun intended).From his earlier 48 Hours reporting to sitting in as anchor for The CBS Evening News for Couric, Harry was hard to beat. It’s amazing, and a real coup for NBC and Brian Williams.
