That didn’t take long. Here’s the new publicity photo of the new CBS “Early Show” anchor team, beginning January 3, 2011. It was announced this morning that current anchors Harry Smith, Maggie Rodriguez, and Dave Price are all being moved off the show, but have been offered jobs at the network.
(l-r) Jeff Glor moves from correspondent and anchor of The “CBS Evening News” Saturday edition to news anchor on “Early”. Chris Wragge will leave his anchor job at WCBS-TV and co-anchor of “Early Show” Saturday to become co-anchor of the weekday edition. Erica Hill moves up from newsreader and weekend co-anchor to weekday co-anchor and Marysol Castro, late of ABC’s “Good Morning America” weekend joins as weather anchor.
TVNewser’s Alex Weprin will be speaking with “Early Show” EP David Friedman about the changes this afternoon. Look for that story in a few hours.
