The announcement was made Wednesday by David Rhodes, president of CBS News.
“Viewers know us as the real news destination in the morning – which is why Bianna is the perfect addition to our team,” said Rhodes. “We are so fortunate to have her curiosity and global perspective on every broadcast of CBS This Morning.”
Golodryga, who has been a reporter and fill-in co-host since 2017, begins Wednesday. She will be based in New York.
“CBS has the best morning news team in the business,” Golodryga said in a statement on Wednesday. “It’s an honor to be joining Gayle, Norah and John and everyone at CTM as we continue to do what CBS News does best — reporting on issues that matter to our viewers, along with enterprising, smart and objective storytelling.”
Golodryga is also a contributor to various CNN programs.
“In the last year Bianna has become a tremendous asset to all of us at CTM,” added executive producer Ryan Kadro. “She is a superb broadcaster and journalist, and we look forward to having her at the table, or reporting in the field, every day.”
Before joining CBS News in August 2017, Golodryga’s career spanned CNBC, ABC News and Yahoo News. From 2007 to 2014, Golodryga was at ABC News as the weekend co-anchor for Good Morning America and as the network’s business correspondent. In 2014, she joined Yahoo News as the news and finance anchor. Golodryga began her career in television as a bureau producer at CNBC in 2001.
The addition is the second to the morning show’s table since Charlie Rose was fired late last year. Dickerson replaced the ousted Rose as the morning show’s third co-host, joining King and O’Donnell in January. CBS cut ties with Rose a day after The Washington Post reported on Nov. 20 that eight women had accused the newsman of sexual misconduct. Rose also lost distribution of his eponymous interview show on PBS and Bloomberg TV.
