Bob Schieffer broke some news during his annual Scheiffer Symposium on the News at Texas Christian University in Fort Worth on Wednesday — he revealed that longtime NBC News journalist Jane Pauley is joining CBS News as a contributor on CBS Sunday Morning.

“She is reinventing herself and is coming to work at CBS News,” Scheiffer announced early in the symposium, which was live-streamed online. “We couldn’t be happier.”

“Bob (Woodward, another symposium panelist) has been tormenting me that I have defected after 40 years,” Pauley said. But she pointed out that she began her career as a news anchor at a CBS affiliate in Indianapolis in 1972, and “I’ve kind of come back home.”

Pauley, 63, has spent much of her TV career with NBC, including 13 years as co-host of Today (1976-1989).

In January, she released her latest book, Your Life Calling: Reimagining the Rest of Your Life (Simon & Schuster, 253 pages, $26). In February, she talked with USA TODAY about what the future might hold for her.

“I’m confident there will be something,” Pauley said. “What I do know is, the fact that I don’t have a clear Plan B or a second or third or fourth act in mind doesn’t mean there isn’t going to be one.”
