CBS News May Boot Norah O'Donnell From Anchor Chair Over Poor Performance, Karen-Like Demeanor

I don't know about you all, but I'm so tuned out of television news I didn't even know she was their evening news anchor.

Seems like I'm not alone. No one's watching the CBS evening news.

Another loss for the white wealthy leftist power feminists of the Karen Kollective.


Norah O'Donnell is in danger of losing the top spot at "CBS Evening News," as cost-slashing execs at the broadcasting giant quietly search for her replacement amid sagging ratings, The Post has learned.

The 47-year-old news anchor -- who muscled her way into the evening slot in 2019 as she fled a reportedly strained relationship with co-host Gayle King on "CBS This Morning" -- now stands vulnerable to the network’s bean counters as her ratings have stayed stubbornly stuck in third place, according to sources close to the situation.

Insiders likewise pointed to O'Donnell's hefty pay package that is in the ballpark of $8 million a year and a three-year contract that’s slated to expire next spring. She faces the possible heave-ho after CBS shelled out millions to move the evening broadcast to Washington, DC, from New York City to accommodate O'Donnell and her husband, chef Geoff Tracy, and their three children.


...

But behind the scenes, The Post has learned that Khemlani has hired management consultants to find ways to trim fat as parent company ViacomCBS continues to digest the 2019 merger of CBS and Viacom, and potentially make the company more attractive for a sale, the sources said.

...

Sources told The Post that O'Donnell’s diva-like behavior wouldn't be missed in the network’s corridors. They said she continues to be rude to hair, makeup and wardrobe staff -- despite years of complaints that she is "divisive" and "toxic" with colleagues. She also has demanded new designer threads throughout the pandemic, a move that rubbed some the wrong way, as she reports on COVID deaths, political upheaval and unemployment.

...

Zirinsky, who denied at the time that O'Donnell's move had anything to do with King, "thought she could control" O'Donnell's ego, but she couldn't, according to one source close to the TV network.
