Anchor Russ Mitchell to leave CBS News after 2 decades to join NBC TV station in Cleveland
By The Associated Press

CLEVELAND (AP) ' Network anchor Russ Mitchell is leaving CBS News after 20 years to anchor for the NBC television station in Cleveland.

WKYC-TV says Mitchell will be seen on its 6 p.m. and 11 p.m. newscasts beginning Jan. 16.

He currently anchors the "CBS Evening News" on Sundays and co-hosts the network's "The Early Show on Saturday Morning." In a statement on WKYC's website, Mitchell calls his new job "a unique opportunity to help create the next generation of local news in a great place."



Mitchell joined CBS in 1992 and has had various anchoring and reporting assignments with the network. He was among the candidates considered to replace Katie Couric when she stepped down this year as anchor of the weekday "CBS Evening News," but that job went to Scott Pelley.
