Pelley became the anchor of the CBS Evening News on June 6, 2011, succeeding Katie Couric. In Pelley's first nine months in the anchor chair, the program gained an additional daily 821,000 viewers. CBS News has also enjoyed increases in its audience for special news events. After election night, 2012, Variety wrote, “With Scott Pelley front and center; the Eye was up 8% from four years ago.” The CBS Evening News increased its audience every year from 2011 through 2015. On May 29, 2015, the media website, The Wrap, wrote: “These days, CBS brass may finally have a reason to smile. On Wednesday, the network announced “Evening News with Scott Pelley” added more than 1.25 million viewers over the past four years – a whopping 21 percent jump. The show also saw audience growth for the fifth consecutive season, the first time any network evening news broadcast has done that since 1987.” At the end of the 2015–2016 television season, CBS News announced, “The CBS Evening News with Scott Pelley, America’s fastest growing network evening news broadcast, finished the 2015-16 television season with CBS’s highest ratings in the time period in 10 years (since the 2005–06 season), according to Nielsen most current ratings. The CBS Evening News has grown its audience for six consecutive seasons, a first-time achievement for any network evening news broadcast since the advent of people meters (since at least 1987). Under Pelley, who assumed the anchor chair in June 2011, the CBS Evening News has added +1.4 million viewers and an audience increase of 23%, which is double NBC and ABC’s growth combined over the same period (since the 2010–11 season).” Pelley’s coverage of the Trump administration has been recognized by journalists and media evaluators. According to Washington Post media columnist Margaret Sullivan, Pelley’s coverage of the Trump administration is an example of “pointed truth telling” that has “set himself apart” from his competitors. Media critic Andrew Tyndall said, “To me, it’s not commentary. It’s actual reporting.” On May 30, 2017, it was reported that Pelley was fired from the CBS Evening News, effective immediately. The report also said that Pelley would remain with CBS, however, as a correspondent for 60 Minutes. The move was made official one day later, on May 31, with Anthony Mason being named interim anchor at the same time. On June 6, the CBS Evening News announced on Twitter that Pelley would anchor until June 16, with Mason taking over the following Monday, June 19. Mason, was in turn, replaced by Jeff Glor, who took over December 4th.
