The Early Show to be dubbed "CBS This Morning"


“CBS This Morning,” hosted by Charlie Rose, Gayle King and Erica Hill, will premiere on Monday, 1/ 9 (7:00-9:00AM, ET/PT) on CBS. Chris Licht, VP/Programming, CBS News, is the Executive Producer. Rose, King and Hill are part of a complete makeover of the ratings-challenged “The Early Show.”

The network said the show will “defy the gauzy conventions of morning television,” according to the NY Times. The show will emphasize hard news and use a conversational approach like “Morning Joe” on MSNBC and “The View” on ABC.

Rose hosts the long-running interview series “Charlie Rose” on PBS and King hosts a morning talk show on OWN, the cable channel of her best friend, Oprah Winfrey. Hill stays on from The Early Show.

For “CBS This Morning,” John Miller will join the broadcast as Senior Correspondent; Rebecca Jarvis will serve as Business and Economics Correspondent; and Jeff Glor will serve as Special Correspondent.
