Rebecca Jarvis Joins CBS News

Jarvis_4.1.bmpAs TVNewser first reported last October, Rebecca Jarvis has joined CBS News and today was named newsreader for the Saturday edition of “The Early Show.” A CNBC alum, Jarvis will also be the business and economics correspondent for CBS News. The appointment is effective today after Jarvis sat out a six-month non-compete.

“Rebecca does an outstanding job reporting on critical business and consumer affairs and we are delighted that she is joining CBS News,” said CBS News and Sports president Sean McManus.

Jarvis is the latest high-profile hire at CBS News. CNN’s Betty Nguyen joined earlier this month as anchor of “CBS Morning News” and a correspondent for “The Early Show.” In January, Erica Hill left CNN for a permanent gig at CBS News where she continues as anchor of the Saturday edition of “The Early Show” as well as newsreader on the weekday edition.

Jarvis, who was the runner-up on season four of “The Apprentice”, joined CNBC in 2006. She was last seen on CNBC Sept. 18.

If Jarvis is to join CBS News, it may be a few months before she’s on the air as she sits out a standard non-compete clause in her contract.

Apprentice No More, Rebecca Jarvis Covers the Financial Storm

Jarvis_12.4.jpgToday CNBC correspondent Rebecca Jarvis is reporting from the Mall of America. She and her CNBC colleagues Margaret Brennan and Jane Wells, will be posted at malls across the nation for a day-long series of reports on holiday shopping in this down economy.

Just a few years ago, Jarvis couldn’t have imagined she’d be working for CNBC. Before joining the network in 2006, she was a financial journalist in Chicago. Before that, she was runner-up on Season 4 of “The Apprentice.” The NY Daily News caught up with Jarvis who remains optimistic despite the ailing economy and job cuts that are even affecting her own company.

“I think it gets to everybody. It’s a matter of perspective,” she tells Richard Huff. “For me, individually, it’s looking at small examples of things, things that are still operating, like my family got together for Thanksgiving.”
