Norah O'Donnell will replace Erica Hill on "CBS This Morning," it was announced Thursday.
Media Bistro reported news of the shake-up. O'Donnell, the network's current White House correspondent, will join Charlie Rose and Gayle King as co-host in the fall. Meanwhile, the network is still working out the details of Hill's future role at CBS.
CBS News chairman Jeff Fager called O'Donnell's appointment "a very exciting development," and praised her experience. "Norah is an accomplished reporter with all the skills for the job," he said. "She's a hard worker who knows her story and, as she has shown time after time at the White House, she can think on her feet on live television."
