CBS names Evening News producer

Apr 16, 2015

CBS News welcomes Brinda Adhikari to CBS Evening News with Scott Pelley as senior producer. Adhikari joins the network from ABC News, where she served as coordinating producer for World News Tonight.

A week before all was revealed, however, ABC's Clayton Sandell shared, "Reluctantly bid adieu 2 rock star producer & friend @adhikab, leaving @WNTonight, off to... somewhere else."

It wasn't until nearly two weeks later that Adhikari tweeted this link, adding, "Beyond excited about this next step!"

At Evening News, Lance Frank greets her, "Welcoming @adhikab to the @CBSEveningNews!" to which she replies, "Thank you! I am so excited to join this incredible news team!"

Don’t forget - if you change your job in journalism or move to a different news organization, be sure to email Kirsten (kirsten [at] sawhorsemedia [dot] com) so we can reflect your new title. News job changes only, please! Thanks!
