Changes at Channel 2/WCBS: Carolyn Gusoff Joins Long Island Bureau; Katie McGee Moves to Nights

WCBS/Channel 2 has hired Carolyn Gusoff to bolster the station’s Long Island bureau with veteran reporter Jennifer McLogan. Gusoff, a Queens native, who grew up in Woodmere, was the Long Island correspondent at WNBC for 15 years. Since 2009, Gusoff  has been a freelance reporter at WNYW/Channel 5.

The move is likely connected to WCBS’ acquisition of WLNY/Channel 55 in December. Viewers can anticipate seeing familiar faces from WCBS on the Long Island channel.  

But that wasn’t all for WCBS. Morning traffic reporter Katie McGee now gets to sleep in. She joins Maurice DuBois and Kristine Johnson as entertainment reporter for the 5 p.m. newscast.

Taking McGee’s traffic beat is Alex Denis. She comes to New York after a stint as a traffic reporter in Nashville, Tennessee. She also worked in Panama City, Florida, and as a political correspondent for a TV station in Tampa, according to her website.
