He's been co-anchoring the broadcast for nearly a year and now it's official: Chris Wragge is a co-anchor for "The Saturday Early Show." The broadcast airs live on Saturday mornings from 7:00 to 9:00. He'll continue with his 5pm and 11pm duties during the week.
Here are some quotes from the CBS press release:
- Sean McManus, President, CBS News and Sports: "Chris has done a great job filling in on Saturdays on THE EARLY SHOW. He's a highly skilled broadcaster and we're pleased to officially welcome him to CBS News."
- Shelley Ross, senior executive producer, The Early Show: "Chris is a truly one of the most versatile people in this business. He's an experienced reporter and anchor who has already become a valued member of our team."
- Peter Dunn, President and General Manager, WCBS-TV: "We are very excited for Chris to have this great opportunity. We're looking forward to watching him six days a week in the New York market."
Wragge joins fellow CBS 2er Lonnie Quinn, who was named to the Saturday morning broadcast last month.
