CBS News is rebranding “CBS This Morning” as “CBS Mornings” starting Sept. 7, 2021.

The show is also adding Nate Burleson as a third co-anchor, replacing Anthony Mason, who is set to contribute culture reports to the show.

In addition, the show is switching theme music and logo design to better match with the network’s iconic “Sunday Morning” show.

“All CBS News morning broadcasts will now be part of the same family, with a focus on original reporting and exquisite storytelling, connected by the sound of the iconic trumpet music and an ethos of optimism that carries all the way through to the sunshine logo itself,” Neeraj Khemlani, president co-head of CBS News and stations, in a statement.

The Saturday edition of the show, currently known as “CBS This Morning Saturday” will also be renamed “CBS Saturday Morning.”

The updates and new co-anchor come as the show also moves to the Times Square studio the network used for its 2020 election coverage, with a refreshed version of that set being used.

“CBS Mornings” will also switch to the “Sunday Morning” theme, a trumpet fanfare performed by Wynton Marsalis based on the piece “Abblasen,” a piece attributed to Gottfried Reiche.
