Former MSNBC Anchor Randy Meier Fills WCBS Gap

As first reported by our sister site TVSpy, veteran anchor Randy Meier is being brought in to WCBS/Channel 2 during the holiday week.

Meier spent three years (2003 - 2006) as an MSNBC daytime anchor.

He is filling in at WCBS as the station is undergoing a major anchor shuffle.

A WCBS spokesman says Meier is not joining WCBS, rather he is simply helping out for a few days while they are shorthanded.   

Earlier this month, Chris Wragge left Channel 2 and his evening anchor duties, for The Early Show. His replacement, Maurice DuBois moves to nights from mornings, while weekend a.m. anchor Rob Morrison gets the weekday dawn patrol.

Both were expected to start on January 3, but likely due to the extended blizzard coverage, were already seen in their new roles.

Update: FishbowlNY has learned that Meier’s first WCBS shift is tonight at 5 p.m.
