"Pelley was pushed out of the Evening News. It's been coming for a long time," another insider said. "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.
