Russ Mitchell Leaving CBS’ ‘Early Show’

Jan 13, 2010  •  Post A Comment

Russ Mitchell, the news anchor on CBS’ “The Early Show,” will leave the program at the end of the week, to become a national correspondent for CBS News, The New York Times reports.

He’ll also continue to anchor the Sunday “CBS Evening News” and report for “CBS News Sunday Morning.” “The Early Show” recently got a new executive producer, David Friedman, but the news anchor change was set in motion before he arrived, the paper said.

  1. What a loss of a great talent at the CBS Morning News. I am so sad to see him leave. He will be greatly missed.

  2. Big mistake replacing Mitchell on The Early Show!!! Are Pregnant Women expected to attract the demographic CBS is looking for? One is enough!!!Everyone I’ve spoken to has mentioned the change having a negative impact on their viewership.

  3. I am so over Maggie sucking up to the Democrats ,I am about to switch to another morning show if Harry and Dave would go there too.I have been an avid CBS fan for 45 years but enough is enough. You had great female personalities on in the morning but you got rid of those. I can’t hardly take her anymore.

  4. yes, what another loss. agree with m. morgan – what’s with the pregnant women, they’ll be gone soon on maternity (good) anyway , then whats next? enough with maggie. but harry and dave still great. all the changes are becoming a turnoff.

  5. I think Mr. Russ Mitchell, should replace Katie Kuric on the daily CBS news. She does not give reality to the news.

  6. If you’re still on the fence: grab your favorite earphones, head down to a Best Buy and ask to plug them into a Zune then an iPod and see which one sounds better to you, and which interface makes you smile more. Then you’ll know which is right for you.

  7. REVOKE the trust and have an ATTORNEY draw up a NEW trust that does what you actually want the trust to do. If the existing trust does not already allow whatever it is, you CAN’T just add ANY language to allow it.

  8. Greetings. First of all – wonderful blog! Secondly this article was also good and interesting to read, but I don’t think everything you have said is how it is in reality. I will need to google about few things you have mentioned in your artcile to make sure. But anyway thanks for trying and good luck on writing other articles. P.S sorry for bad English, I aren’t English native speaker.

  9. Great blog!! You should start many more. I love all the info provided. I will stay tuned 🙂
