CBS Early Show co-anchors Harry Smith and Maggie Rodriguez will be leaving the also-ran morning news program, CBS announced today. They will be joined on the way out the door by weatherman Dave Price. Their replacement team will be Erica Hill, who made her name as Anderson Cooper’s sidekick on 360° over at CNN, and Chris Wragge, who currently anchors WCBS-TV’s news at five (and made his name, in part, by formerly being married to Swedish model Victoria Silvstedt). Jeff Glor will replace Hill as news anchor, and Marysol Castro will join the team as weather anchor. The changes will go into full effect just after New Year’s. Meanwhile, it has not been reported what will become of the outgoing anchors.
