Well I knew this was coming ever since Michelle Relerford (more than likely replacing her) kept filling in on the weekend. Sound off below.

Loved the Early Show from the Harry Smith, Dave Price, Maggie Rodriguez era. (2008-2010)

Feder had a write-up the other day saying that it's between 4 current reporters, but they might hire from the outside if they're not thrilled with the internal candidates (but I think that's highly unlikely). It's between Relerford, Emily Florez, Lauren Petty and Susan Carlson right now. I doubt it'd be Florez, for I don't think she's even full-time yet, and I haven't seen her anchor. Petty, despite filling in several times, doesn't strike me as the anchor type. Carlson is the least likely candidate, as she already has her M-F job on Roe & Roeper on WLS-AM. Hardly she is going to do long lengths of anchoring on her 2 days off. Relerford seems like the best option, for sure.

I'd like to see Susan Carlson get the job. She already worked 7 days a week at WBBM before.
