NEW YORK — WCBS-TV New York has assigned two new anchors to its local newscasts at 5 p.m. and noon, starting today: Kristine Johnson and Chris Wragge.

Johnson was most recently an anchor for NBC News’ “Early Today” and an alternating anchor for “Weekend Today.” She also performed daytime anchor duties for MSNBC. Wragge gets a promotion from sports anchor.

The duo are replacing the previous anchors of the newscasts, Roz Abrams and Mary Calvi. They’ll both stay with WCBS, Abrams in a yet-to-be-defined role and Calvi as a weekend anchor for the news on Saturday at 6 and 11 p.m. and Sunday at 6:30 and 11 p.m.
