STUDIO CITY (CBS) — The new faces of CBS News’ “The Early Show” visited CBS2 Tuesday morning.
The show’s new morning anchor team will be Chris Wragge and Erica Hill, who have worked together anchoring CBS’ Saturday-morning show.
Wragge worked in sports, including a stint as a sideline reporter at events for NBC, until he made the jump to news in 2006. Beside his weekend job at CBS, he had been anchoring local news broadcasts at the network’s New York affiliate, a job he’ll give up to go national.
Hill, who came to CBS from CNN, briefly filled in for Maggie Rodriguez last year when she was on maternity leave.
Jeff Glor, anchor of Saturday’s “CBS Evening News” and a reporter on “The Early Show,” will take over the news reader job on the morning show, CBS said. Marysol Castro, formerly of ABC’s “Good Morning America” weekend edition, will do the weather.
The new team will start on Jan. 3. It marks the second big change to a morning team in a year, after ABC installed George Stephanopoulos as a co-anchor with Robin Roberts and added news reader JuJu Chang.
