After going missing from the anchor desk, former MSNBC weekend anchor Kendis Gibson has landed a deal to anchor the local morning and midday news in Miami.

“We are pleased to welcome Kendis to CBS Miami and have him join our outstanding team of journalists,” Darryll Green, vice president and general manager, said. “His extensive experience at both the network and local level, along with his passion for news and community service will make him a great addition to our newsroom as well as our South Florida community.”

Gibson joined MSNBC in 2019 and was eventually paired with Lindsey Reiser to co-anchor rolling news coverage on the weekends.

Prior to that, Gibson worked at ABC News’ “World News Now” and “America This Morning,” so joining CBS owned WFOR will keep him on the early shift.

MSNBC dropped Gibson and Reiser’s names from their weekend block back in 2021, instead just using the name “MSNBC Reports.” Gibson hadn’t been seen on air consistently in some time and some viewers took note.
