Mason will also continue to co-anchor CBS This Morning: Saturday with Alex Wagner.

After six years of third-place finishes in the network news race, Scott Pelley is said to be out as anchor and managing editor of the "CBS Evening News". CBS News highlighted that Pelley has won 33 Emmys for his work in the field, almost all of them for "60 Minutes".

Pelley joined CBS Evening News in 2011 following the high-profile departure of Katie Couric. Pelley has also spent these years in a dual role, as a correspondent for "60 Minutes", which required frequent absences from the program for travel related to reporting duties. He has been at CBS News for more than 30 years, joining the network in 1986 in the London bureau.

We have managed to come out on top but certainly they have given us very good games and I am sure it will be no different this time".

Page Six's sources claimed that CBS News president David Rhodes "is making [Pelley] move to 60 Minutes" as the two "don't get on". But collectively, they still reach more than 20 million viewers each night for half-hour summaries of the day's news. "I'm glad to accept this assignment with continuing gratitude".

This isn't the first recent drama at CBS News, either. The show won seven Emmys in his term and a slew of journalism awards.

As of now, no replacement has been named for Pelley. Another source tells the site that Pelley is exiting the show in order to focus all his attention on 60 MINUTES' upcoming anniversary.

Denpasar police chief, Hadi Purnomo, said police were obliged to provide security for Corby's release and transfer to the airport. Ms Corby can now speak freely to media but not for profit, as Australia's proceed of crime laws mean she cannot sell her story.

The source added that the decision could have been a result of friction between Pelley and CBS News President David Rhodes. More significant to Pelley's continued tenure, his newscast had the largest audience decline among the three network newscasts.

Page Six reported back in December that Pelley was rumored to be on his way out.

Another insider told the Los Angeles Times that it was Pelley's decision to have his office cleared out before CBS announces the shakeup.
