Hmm. Rather-Chung. At least the CBS Evening News partnership that begins June 1 has a nice ring to it. That's important because the chemistry between these two promises to be inert and the on-air logistics cumbersome. Chung's elevation signals a seismic shift: Network newsies are now more prized—and rewarded—for their abilities to host a prime-time magazine (like Chung's Eye to Eye, which debuts next month) than for their anchoring skills. Winning the nightly news race means prestige, but magazines are where the money is.
