CBS Morning News

"CBS Morning News" is the half-hour daily television broadcast from CBS News that airs following "Up to the Minute". It airs from 4:30 to 5 a.m. in many markets and in some markets it airs at 4:00 AM Eastern Time (it is updated for the different time zones across the United States) and features late-breaking news stories, weather forecasts, and sports scores. Its current anchor is Michelle Gielan.


The original "CBS Morning News" began as a predecessor to CBS' current Early Show. For most of the 1960s and 1970s the broadcast aired as a 60 minute hard news broadcast at 7 a.m., opposite Today on NBC and preceding Captain Kangaroo on CBS. When CBS re-formatted the early morning broadcast, the "CBS Morning News" became a pre-dawn 30 minute news broadcast.

The program first aired in its current format on October 4, 1982 as the "CBS Early Morning News", with then-"Morning News" anchors Bill Kurtis and Diane Sawyer anchoring. Sawyer departed both programs for "60 Minutes" in the fall of 1984 and was briefly succeeded on both shows by Jane Wallace. For the first half of 1985, Kurtis would continue to anchor the "Early Morning News" solo until March while continuing to co-anchor "Morning News" with Phyllis George until July. Faith Daniels took over and would remain on the anchor desk, most of the time sharing the anchor desk with Forrest Sawyer (July to December 1985 and January to September 1987) and later Douglas Edwards and Charles Osgood, until leaving to anchor "NBC News at Sunrise" in 1990. Osgood would remain on the job until June 1992, paired with Victoria Corderi (April 1990-August 1991), Giselle Fernández (to February 1992), and Meredith Vieira (for the remainder of Osgood's term). After Vieira left in March 1993, the turnover continued, as shown below:

*John Roberts (June 1992-June 1994)
*Monica Gayle (August 1993-April 1995)
*Jane Robelot (April 1995-August 1996)
*Troy Roberts (April 1995-August 1996)
*Cynthia Bowers (August 1996-December 1998)
*Thalia Assuras (August 1996-1999?)
*Julie Chen (1999?-October 2002)
*Susan McGinnis (October 2002-January 2008)
*Michelle Gielan (July 21, 2008-present)
