BREAKING: Scott Pelley Out of ‘CBS Evening News’

Scott Pelley is out at “CBS Evening News,” Page Six has exclusively learned.

‘Poison Pelley’s’ office was being cleared out on Tuesday while the anchor was away on an assignment for the network’s news magazine “60 Minutes.”

We’re told that he’s being shifted permanently to “60 Minutes.”

Insiders tell us that CBS News president David Rhodes “is making [Pelley] move to ‘60 Minutes,’ ” and that the pair “don’t get on.”

Another TV insider said while Pelley’s ratings have been down, “There’s also been friction between him and [Rhodes].”

Added a source, “[Pelley] was pushed out of the ‘Evening News.’ It’s been coming for a long time. This could have been handled better — [Pelley] is away on a story, and they’re cleaning out his office. It’s not the correct way to treat the face of CBS news.”

No replacement has yet been named, but CBS has a deep bench of anchors who can fill in.

Sources say there was confusion on Tuesday among staff at CBS’s Hell’s Kitchen headquarters as workers began dismantling the office of Pelley — dubbed ‘Poison Pelley’ by Page Six after he yelled at a reporter in 2013, “You wouldn’t last 10 seconds at CBS News!”

Others insist Pelley is moving to the “60 Minutes” offices.

    First Anderson Cooper apologizes for an inappropriate comment, then Pelley, who shows no love lost for Trump, loses his anchor role on CBS. Could it be that MSM are reevaluating their liberal ways??? LOL! Could we be back in Kansas, Toto?

    I never did care for him, but then the only CBS news program I watch, ocasionally, is 60 Minutes. I always found him arrogant and pompous.

    I never forgave him when I saw him admonish a soldier for doing his job. So GOOD! I’m glad he’s gone.
