But for WCBS, this was no rearranging of the deck chairs on the Titanic.
DuBois, the consummate pro, appeared to have instant chemistry with his new on-air partner Kristine Johnson.
And now the ratings bear that out.
In the just released February sweeps, FishbowlNY has learned that WCBS has won the 11 p.m. newscast, which DuBois and Johnson c0-anchor.
This marks the first time Channel 2 has won the weeknight late news sweeps race since 1994. That ratings book was influenced by CBS’ coverage of the Winter Olympics in prime time.
