    The new anchor is boring on the morning news

    So... it’s The Early Show all over again?

    Um, I would hope not!!

    This means that there is another lady at the anchor table to give John Dickerson more trouble every morning LOL!! He is now FAR outnumbered (3 females [Gayle, Norah, & Bianna] and 1 male [John Dickerson]!! :D:D:D

    Fear not, CBS This Morning is 75 TIMES better than the Early Show ever was throughout its run, for many reasons (too many to list here)!!

    This reninds me of the four-anchor morning team of Harry, Hannah, Rene and Julie back then.

    Happy for Bianna, but I was already accustomed to the three anchor lineup. Very random development, but is CBS News telling us something? Is The Talk toast? A third hour of CBS This Morning in the works? A weather guy? Anderson Cooper coming aboard for morning chats?

    A weatherman/woman would be great. I would watch more often. I like to get the big picture when it comes to the weather. Not just the local 10 second weather forecast.

    I’m also curious how legit the 4th role will be. Like will they have a fill in when one of the 4 is gone or just revert to a 3 anchor lineup?

    I’m assuming it’ll contract to a trio when one’s away; there has been talk of both Norah and Gayle contributing to 60 Minutes this season, so I wonder if Bianna is there to be a permanent part of the show without being delegated to simply fill-in.

    This is an odd decision, but Bianna is a great anchor and great fit for the show (congrats to her), so I'm very interested in where this new lineup direction goes.

    If the bosses at CBS are as nervous and itchy over Jeff Glor as we're led to believe, they might be starting to move pieces in advance of moving Norah or John to Evening News.

    Didn't even think about that but it makes too much sense. LOL at the idea of networks still changing the personalities of these newscasts instead of overhauling the antiquated format.

    How do you propose they bring the format up to date? GMA and Today have modernized their format and you’ve criticized them for it!

    I think people may be reading too much into this. Gayle and Norah (on the surface) appear to be the main anchors with John and now Bianna having the title of 'co-anchor' in name only. I could be wrong, but that's how I view things on CTM. Given Bianna's background, it's a plus to have someone cover/discuss financial news, etc..., which is severely lacking on the big 3 morning shows.

    Reading into what? I think otherwise.
    I only found the decision odd, and is just taking a wait-see approach. There's nothing between the lines I'm closing in on.
    If this is the plan the producers have with Bianna, cool.

    A lack of a meteorologist (except on Saturdays) is part of the show’s charm.

    I think it is more format then it is personality driven.

    I also wouldn't necessarily assume additional talent moves are forthcoming. This could just be CBS trying to emulate the 4-6 person ensemble cast that has worked well for GMA and Today.
