Scott Pelley, one the most experienced reporters in broadcast journalism, was named anchor and managing editor of the CBS Evening News in May 2011. In its first season, “The CBS Evening News with Scott Pelley” won a Peabody award and was the only network evening news broadcast to grow its audience.
Few reporters have made as wide and as deep a mark on a news organization as Pelley has at CBS News, where he’s covered everything from breaking national news stories to politics to wars and served as the network’s chief White House correspondent. Since he brought that experience to “60 Minutes” in 2004, half of all the major awards won by the broadcast have been for stories reported by Pelley. In addition to his daily anchor role as the network’s chief reporter, Pelley continues to provide many stories to “60 Minutes.”
Before becoming chief White House correspondent, Pelley was assigned to the 1992 presidential campaigns of Bill Clinton and Ross Perot. Prior to that, he served as a CBS News correspondent based in Dallas, where he covered many of the biggest domestic stories, including the Oklahoma City bombing and the trial of Timothy McVeigh. He also reported on the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center, the Los Angeles Northridge earthquake, the Branch Davidian raid near Waco, Texas, Hurricanes Andrew and Hugo and NASA’s shuttle missions.
On Sept. 11, Pelley was among the first reporters to arrive on the scene of the twin towers. His award-winning live reports from ground zero and the subsequent search and recovery operations exhibited his innate ability to provide a deeper understanding of news events.
Pelley joined CBS News as a reporter based in New York in 1989.
