With the “new chapter” of “CBS This Morning,” the show will not only have a mostly new anchor team, but also four correspondents assigned to the show.

  • David Begnaud, Jericka Duncan, Anna Werner and Vladimir Duthiers, all existing CBS correspondents, are being “dedicated” to the program.
  • In addition, their work will continue to appear on “CBS Evening News,” CBSN and other CBS programming.
  • The team joins Gayle King, Anthony Mason and Tony Dokoupil, who are the show’s core co-anchors.
  • Of this trio, only King remains after a major talent shakeup at the network, that includes moving her former co-anchors Norah O’Donnell to “Evening News” later this summer and John Dickerson to “60 Minutes.”
  • “Evening News” anchor Jeff Glor was also sidelined in the shuffle.

The four correspondents will have the following assignments:

  • Begnaud becomes lead national correspondent.
  • Duncan will serve as a national correspondent.
  • Duthiers will will deliver what CBS calls “the first look at stories people are talking about each day.”
  • Werner has been named consumer investigative correspondent for the show.
