Dave Price Joining Fox Station in New York

Former “Early Show” weather and features reporter Dave Price has been named co-anchor of “Good Day New York,” the morning show on Fox-owned WNYW.

Price exited CBS News in December 2010 after eight years with “The Early Show.” TVSpy reports he will be paired Rosanna Scotto on the morning newscast.

Price, who worked at WNYW as a weather anchor before joining CBS, said in a statement that he is “raring to go.” His first day is Monday.

CBS This Morning Launches on Facebook

“CBS This Morning” now as a Facebook page. It went up yesterday. Go ahead. Like it. You know you want to.


You may recall CBS “Early Show” fans turned to Facebook around this time last year. They created a page to save the then-current “Early Show” team of Harry Smith, Maggie Rodriguez and Dave Price. It didn’t work out so well, but the page got up to 1,540 likes and has a wall post as recent as last week.

Dave Price Back on CBS

Dave Price, the former weather guy on the “The Early Show,” returned to CBS last night on “The Late Show.”

Price had a fictitious 5-day forecast about the oppressive heat this week in many parts of the country.

It’s not expected to get up to 128 degrees anywhere in the U.S. today, but it did get up to 121 on July 2 in East Mesa, Arizona — the hottest temperature so far this year in the U.S.

Harry Smith Leaving CBS News for NBC News

First on TVNewser: Harry Smith, who has been with CBS News for 25 years, is leaving the network, we’ve learned. In a note to the staff, obtained by TVNewser, CBS News president David Rhodes writes, “Harry Smith has been a fixture here at CBS News for a generation — he joined us in Dallas in 1986 — but today he’s decided to move on.”

Late last year, Smith was part of a shuffling of anchors at “The Early Show.” The team of Smith, Maggie Rodriguez and Dave Price was moved out, as Erica Hill, Chris Wragge, Marysol Castro and Jeff Glor took over.

We hear Smith is headed to NBC News where he’ll be a part of the new primetime news magazine show anchored by Brian Williams. That show is being headed up by another CBS News alum, Rome Hartman.

> Update: NBC News confirms with TVNewser that Smith is joining the network. They will announce the move on Monday.

Memo to staff from Rhodes, after the jump…

Erica Hill Talks ‘Early Show’ on the ‘Late Show’

CBS “Early Show” co-anchor Erica Hill was a guest on the “Late Show with David Letterman” this week. With Letterman, guests can never be sure what will come up, and sure enough Dave wanted to talk about some of the former hosts.

“You came onto the Early Show in January, after everyone was killed,” Letterman quipped, before asking about Harry Smith and Dave Price. Hill, to her credit, played along, and noted that she has been a part of the ‘Early Show” team for quite some time.

Sarah Palin Parties with the Main (or is it Lame?) stream Media

Seeming to put politics aside for a few hours — not one but two GOP governors stopped in to the MSNBC After Party last night at the Italian Embassy in Washington DC: New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie — often the target of MSNBC’s opinionated hosts — and former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (right, meeting NBC News correspondent Luke Russert for the first time). Palin, as we reported yesterday, was the guest of Fox News anchor Greta Van Susteren.

As MSNBC host/mixologist Rachel Maddow made a drink for “Glee’s” Jane Lynch, MSNBC boss Phil Griffin, worked the room. It’s his after party afterall. And not missing an opportunity to synergize, Cee lo Green, of NBC’s “The Voice” was the entertainment.

In addition to Van Susteren, we spotted Bret Baier from Fox News chatting with NBC’s Savannah Guthrie. NBC News president Steve Capus and “Today” show EP Jim Bell — who’d both just returned from London covering the Royal Wedding and sharing ratings info on his Blackberry. Looks like “Today” was #1 again on Royal Wedding day. (Final numbers later on TVNewser).

Eliot Spitzer in tow with CNN’s chief communicator Christa Robinson; Roland Martin, David Bohrman, and Sam Feist also of CNN and ABC’s Jim Sciutto.

We chatted up CNBC’s Rick Santelli, in from Chicago, Carl Quintanilla and Hampton Pearson. NBC’s Janet Shamlian, and Kelly O’Donnell and MSNBC’s Dylan Ratigan and Contessa Brewer, now almost four months along. Ed Schultz was proud to tell us he’s overtaken Anderson Cooper in the ratings at 10pm, in just his third month on the air. “Big news,” says big Ed.

Meanwhile, over at the Bloomberg/Vanity Fair party, tipsters tell us Jake Tapper, Dave Price, John Dickerson, Chris Isham, Gayle King, and Seth Meyers [who'd poked fun at the thought that the Bloomberg party was a hot ticket], were still in full party mode at 2:15am. “The patio is still packed,” we were emailed. “They started serving breakfast snacks.”

Piers Morgan’s Bill O’Reilly Story, And More From The ‘Piers Morgan Tonight’ Launch Party

Last night TVNewser ventured to the Upper East Side of Manhattan, where Newsweek/Daily Beast editor Tina Brown hosted a party for CNN’s new 9 PM host, Piers Morgan.

In welcoming the guests, Morgan shared a remarkable (if it’s true) story about an encounter he had with Fox News host Bill O’Reilly at a recent New York Knicks game.

Morgan and O’Reilly were in the VIP suite, and having never met the FNC host, Morgan naturally wanted to say hello.

“Obvisouly I marched up, expecting him to shower me with praise about this glorious resurrection of CNN, and he comes up to me and goes, ‘ah, yea, I know you,’” Morgan recalled.

“So I shuffled off meekly,” Morgan said. “Not only is he #1 but he is intimidating, he sort of shooed me away.”

It was Morgan, however, who would get the last laugh a few minutes later, when O’Reilly returned with his teenage daughter:

This Guy Really Likes the Current ‘Early Show’ Team

Today is the last (official) day for the current “Early Show” team of Harry Smith, Maggie Rodriguez and Dave Price, with a new anchor crew coming on board in January.

Some people are not taking the change well:

There is also a “Save the Current Early Show Team” page on Facebook, but the 822 “likes” probably aren’t enough to force CBS to make any changes.

Dave Price: ‘It’s tempting to mourn the loss of this incredible job — but I won’t.’

As he left “The Early Show” set for the last time, Dave Price hit “send” on an email to the staff of the show, which was obtained by TVNewser. Price, who spent the last eight years as weatherman and roving reporter, writes:

This morning was my final broadcast on The Early Show. Having been on both sides of the employment equation now, I can say with certainty that it’s more fun to be part of the change than part of what’s being changed — but I can’t complain. I have had unforgettable experiences and developed irreplaceable friendships over all these years at CBS News. For all of that I thank you.

I’m grateful for each mile I’ve traveled across the country and the globe for much of the last decade. I’ve had the privilege of meeting remarkable people — people who take an ordinary day and make it extraordinary. I’m lucky not only to have been able to tell their stories, but to witness them first-hand. If you were to ask Harry, Maggie, Erica, or me — each of us believes we have the best job on the news team. But here’s the secret — I actually did. Interviewing stars and meeting powerful leaders is thrilling– but it’s the everyday people that I got to spend time with that made my job as special as it was. Everyday people taught me so much. What is sacrifice? Who is a hero? What distinguishes surviving from thriving? How is luck defined? What does it mean to be a soldier? Why should we forgive? — All those questions and more have been answered for me by people I’ve met on the road over the years. How lucky am I?
