WCBS Anchor Chris Wragge to Participate in CBS Sports’ U.S. Open Coverage

WCBS anchor Chris Wragge talks to our sister site, FishbowlNY, about being part of CBS Sports’ coverage of the U.S. Open beginning August 27:

As for the idea of launching himself into a larger sports presence at CBS, Wragge says it’s not his decision. “It’s totally up to them,” Wragge says. “I’ll do as much as my bosses will allow me to do.”

Wragge, who was hired in 2004 as lead sports anchor when Warner Wolf was shown the door, says today the “password” is versatility.

“It’s a lot more prevalent now than let’s say it was 10 years ago,” Wragge admits. “I think a lot of these networks and a lot of these places are looking for people that can do a multitude of things … If I have to wear that sports hat a little bit, I can do that. I can jump right back into news and neither is compromised.”
