CBS Evening News” anchor Norah O’Donnell was caught on air gesturing angrily to something (or someone) off camera at the start of the network’s special coverage of Donald Trump’s impeachment trial.

  • O’Donnell was anchoring the network’s special report Jan. 21, 2020.
  • Before the report started, a wide shot showed O’Donnell on the new set the network built in Washington, D.C. with in-studio correspondents and analysts.
  • The control room then cut to a one shot of her against one of the studio’s large video walls.
  • Just before cutting to a pretaped extended open, O’Donnell can be seen looking off camera angrily and pointing to something off camera.
  • It’s not immediately clear what she was gesturing at, but she apparently thought the open had already started to run.
  • Possibilities range from one of the monitors that show what’s on the air or feeds from the Senate floor or someone was in her eye line.
  • We’ve reached out to insiders at CBS to see if anyone can shed light what happened in the studio.
