CBS' 'Early Show' Dumps Marysol Castro
The weather anchor, who joined the revamped morning show in January, is gone from the show but will remain with CBS News.
Marysol Castro, who has been the morning weather person with CBS' Early Show since the program's revamp in January, is leaving the program as of Friday morning.
Moving forward, the morning weather on the third-ranked network morning program will be handled by local affiliates, according to the media site TVNewser.
Castro is expected to remain with CBS News for the time being, but her new role has not been announced.
The move is just the latest iteration of the ongoing evolution of the Early Show. In January, the on-screen team of Harry Smith, Maggie Rodriguez and weatherman Dave Price were replaced by Chris Wragge, Erica Hill and Castro on weather.
Further changes under CBS News heads Jeff Fager and David Rhodes include an emphasis on hard news and politics and a new set.
Former executive producer David Friedman was fired in May after Rhodes issued a memo taking the Early Show to task for failing to properly highlight CBS News' scoops.
Though the Early Show's ratings have been climbing, it's still in third place behind Today and Good Morning America.
