“THE CBS EVENING NEWS” KEEPS TRYING

As “The CBS Evening News with Jeff Glor” continues to languish in the ratings game, three more staffers were promoted to try and fix things.

Molly Kordares and Alturo Rhymes will join the newscast’s editorial management team as senior producers, while Chris Mix will take on a new role as the supervising graphics producer, where he’ll help “streamline and optimize our graphics process and look.”

Because jazzier graphics will certainly get it done, right?

Kordares has worked at CBS News since 2008. She spent 6 years at “CBS This Morning,” most recently as a supervising producer focused on the 7 a.m. hour.

Rhymes has worked at Evening News since 2011, with assignments that have included Ferguson and Baltimore police protests; the Newtown School shooting; coverage in Cuba when the Obama administration re-opened relations with that country; and Pope Francis’ visit to the U.S.

Mix joined CBS News in 2008, and has worked on Evening News since 2012, first as a production associate before moving up to associate director in 2014.
