Simmoneau, who will co-anchor alongside Juliet Huddy, comes from KYW in Philadelphia. He has been an investigative reporter and anchor at the CBS O&O since 2008.

“We’re proud to welcome Ben to the ‘Good Day Wake Up’ team. His unique style and ability to find and tell great stories will certainly be an asset to our morning team,” WNYW vice president and news director Dianne Doctor said in a statement.
