CBS taps Stensland for regular ‘Saturday’ role

Eye hammering out deal with Philly station

NEW YORK — Philadelphia newswoman Dawn Stensland’s temporary stint co-anchoring CBS News’ “Saturday Morning” is about to turn into a regular gig.

While a final deal has yet to be worked out, CBS brass have begun the process of hammering out an agreement to share Stensland’s services with her full-time employer, CBS-owned KYW, Eye web insiders say. Stensland will likely continue to anchor weekday newscasts for KYW four days per week while co-anchoring “Saturday Morning” for CBS.

Stensland has been sitting in with “Saturday Morning” anchor Russ Mitchell for much of the summer. She stepped into the position following the June departure of former congresswoman-turned-anchor Susan Molinari.

Meanwhile, CBS is still formulating plans to reshape its weekday ayem broadcast, “This Morning,” which remains stuck in third place despite some year-to-year ratings growth.
