CBS names ‘Early Show’ co-anchor

Maggie Rodriguez moving to weekdays

CBS News is promoting Maggie Rodriguez from the Saturday “Early Show” minor league to the weekday ayem big league, filling the co-anchor slot on the show that Hannah Storm will soon vacate.

Rodriguez has served as co-anchor of the Saturday “Early Show” for the past six months, and she’s also contributed a series of reports to the mothership “Early Show” and to the “CBS Evening News With Katie Couric.”

Before joining the Eye, Rodriguez served as the 5 and 11 p.m. news anchor for CBS-owned WFOR-TV Miami. Newly appointed “Early Show” exec producer Shelley Ross made the first public move to overhaul the weekday “Early Show” last week with the announcement of Storm’s impending departure from the ayemcast (Daily Variety, Nov. 30).

“Early Show” is targeting Jan. 7 as an unofficial relaunch date, with a new set and shuffled anchor team of Harry Smith, Julie Chen and Rodriguez. Russ Mitchell will continue as news anchor while Dave Price continues to dispense the weather news.

“In the past six months, Maggie has proved to be a remarkably good fit in morning news,” said CBS News and Sports prexy Sean McManus.
