Abrams aboard at WCBS

Anchor ankles WABC after 18 years

WCBS New York has hired veteran New York anchorwoman Roz Abrams to join forces with Ernie Anastos as co-anchor for the 5 and 11 p.m. newscasts.

Abrams spent 18 years as a co-anchor with WABC New York. WCBS is hoping Abrams gives it a Nielsen boost as the station is still a distant third to WABC and WNBC in the ratings at 5 and 11.

Abrams succeeds Cindy Hsu at 5 and Dana Tyler at 11. Tyler will continue co-anchoring with Michael Pomeranz at 6 p.m., and Hsu continues as co-anchor at noon, also with Pomeranz.
