After a number of years on Today, Bryant Gumbel joined CBS News in 1997 to anchor a primetime news magazine: Public Eye with Bryant Gumbel. With an emphasis on serious journalism, costs were high while ratings were not. Within a year the program was cancelled and replaced by another CBS news magazine – 60 Minutes II. The theme for the news magazine Public Eye is composed and played by Neal Fox of Patterson, Walz & Fox.
