Nearly eight months after CBS’ morning show relaunched with a focus on hard news, co-anchor Erica Hill is out, replaced by CBS News chief White House correspondent Norah O’Donnell.
O’Donnell will join co-hosts Charlie Rose and Gayle King on “CBS This Morning” in the fall. Hill, who was a co-anchor of the previous incarnation of CBS’ morning program, “The Early Show,” is in discussions regarding a new role.
O’Donnell served as a fill-in host on the program last week.
Lewis Black is bringing his anger back to Broadway, just in time for the election.

Actor Russell Brand must perform 20 hours of community service and pay a $500 court fee to resolve a misdemeanor charge stemming from a confrontation with a photographer in New Orleans.
Brand did not appear in court in New Orleans Thursday, but his attorney, Robert Glass, entered a not-guilty plea on his behalf to a charge of criminal damage to property.
Glass said that under a deal with the district attorney’s office, the case would be dismissed if the actor provides proof that he has completed the service requirement by Aug. 31.
A grandson of famous tightrope walker Karl Wallenda will perform in Montana this weekend during the 11th Evel Knievel Days.
Rick Wallenda told The Montana Standard he has always been a fan of the famous motorcycle daredevil from Butte.
Wallenda, 57, plans to walk on a 250-foot wire cable about 50 feet off the ground.
Tightrope walking has been passed down generation to generation in Wallenda’s family, starting with his grandfather. His mother, Carla, continues to do a high-wire act at age 76, and his second-cousin, Nik, made history this summer with a tightrope walk over Niagara Falls.
