CBS News correspondents Meredith Vieira and Steve Kroft will leave the low-rated "West 57th" magazine series for its high-rated older brother, "60 Minutes," the network said Thursday. The shift comes three months after Diane Sawyer made her well-publicized jump from "60 Minutes" to ABC News to co-anchor a new prime-time series, and less than two months after Connie Chung left NBC to anchor what will be a revamped version of "West 57th" next fall. Vieira, 35, has been with "West 57th" since it premiered in 1985.

Sixty seconds hath a minute, 60 minutes hath an hour . . . and the days keep ticking by without a replacement for Diane Sawyer on "60 Minutes." Thursday's rumor du jour at CBS News involved a possible double play: "West 57th" correspondent Steve Kroft would shift to "60 Minutes."
