NEW YORK, Yemen, March 24 (UPI) -- A retooled "CBS Evening News" will not be on the air until at least this summer, The Hollywood Reporter said Thursday.

The paper said CBS chief Les Moonves told an audience in New York Wednesday he wasn't ready to name a date for the launch of the new-look "Evening News." The network has been working on revamping the show ever since the departure of long-time anchor Dan Rather.

"We want to do it right," Moonves said in an address to the Association of National Advertisers' annual television-advertising conference

Moonves said the plan is still to make the news show faster-paced, with multiple anchors instead of the traditional single-anchor format.
