CBS News has named a replacement for Dana Miller as EP of “CBS This Morning,” the network’s third place morning show.

For the show, CBS has hired Shawna Thomas away from Quibi, where she served as a content development executive working on short-form news programming from CBS News, NBC News and BBC News for the mobile video platform.

She also spent three years at Vice News as its Washington, D.C. bureau chief.

Previously, Thomas worked at NBC News for just over a decade. From 2014 to 2016, Thomas was a senior producer at NBC News’ “Meet the Press,” where she oversaw the broadcast’s digital profile and helped remake the show when Chuck Todd took over as moderator.CBS News
