CBS News President David Rhodes To Step Down

CBS News President David Rhodes said that he is stepping down, following a tumultuous year for the network and its news division.

“It’s been eight incredible years since I joined @CBS,” Rhodes tweeted Sunday. “I’m pleased to announce that I’ll soon be handing the reins @CBSNews to Susan Zirinsky, our Senior Executive Producer.”
