WASHINGTON — Cable News Network's principal Washington anchor, Bernard Shaw, is returning as co-anchor of the 8 p.m. weeknight "Primenews" starting next Monday, reuniting him with Atlanta-based Lou Waters.
Waters' previous co-anchor, Susan Rook, moves to weekend anchor. The switch in assignments means Shaw has dropped his role on "The International Hour," which he has co-anchored with Ralph Wenge. No replacement for Shaw on the afternoon show has been named. Shaw also continues as co-anchor, with Catherine Crier, of the one-hour weeknight "The World Today" at 6.
Shaw previously co-anchored "Primenews" with Waters and Mary Alice Williams from 1982 until last year when "The World Today" began its run.
