Don Dahler Will Shift to Weekends at WCBS Following Chris Wragge’s Return

Don Dahler, who was displaced from the WCBS 6 p.m. broadcast this week when Chris Wragge returned to the station after nine months on “The Early Show,” will continue as the morning and evening weekend anchor at the CBS owned-and-operated station.

“We are very pleased to have reached an agreement with Don that will keep him at CBS 2,” president and general manager Peter Dunn said in a statement. “We look forward to having him continue to play an important role for us.”

Beginning this weekend, Dahler will be paired with Cindy Hsu to anchor the station’s weekend morning newscasts. He will anchor the weekend evening newscasts solo, and he will also contribute to the weekday newscasts as a reporter.

Chris Wragge Returns to WCBS Anchor Desk

In a move that was announced last month, Chris Wragge returned to the WCBS anchor desk on Tuesday night, where he is co-anchoring the CBS O&O’s weeknight 6 p.m. newscast for the time being in addition to hosting “The Early Show.”

Although Wragge’s return represents a significant shakeup to the station’s on-air roster, WCBS was reserved in welcoming him back during last night’s newscast.  As FishbowlNY points out, there was no mention of Wragge’s return until the veteran anchor referred to it himself in throwing to Otis Livingston‘s sports segment.

“My first night back, you going to lead with the Giants?” Wragge, an apparent football fan, joked with Livingston.

To which Dana Tyler, Wragge’s new 6 o’clock co-anchor, said, “Come on, it’s not all about you.” Read more

In a press release, WCBS president and general manager Peter Dunn said that Wragge would continue his “day job” at “The Early Show”–at least for the time being.
