CBS is revamping their morning show, bringing in Charlie Rose, Gayle King, and Erica Hill to host the program set to air 7-9am beginning Jan. 9, 2012. Additionally, John Miller was named Senior Correspondent, Rebecca Jarvis is the Business and Economics Correspondent, and Jeff Glor will be a Special Correspondent on the new morning show.
And the on-air talent isn’t the only thing being revamped at CBS. The network also announced they’re redoing the CBS Broadcast Center, adding floor-to-ceiling windows on 57th Street through which the public can get a sneak peek behind the scenes during the broadcast.
CBS News Chairman and 60 MINUTES Executive Producer Jeff Fager stated, “This program represents a new direction for morning television at CBS. We will produce a broadcast that is interesting and compelling and on top of the big stories of the day. It will be lively and engaging and worth your while.”

The new morning program will broadcast live from the legendary CBS Broadcast Center in New York City, which has served as the headquarters of CBS News broadcasts for nearly half a century. The CBS Broadcast Center is where television icons including Edward R. Murrow and Walter Cronkite first created original reporting, broadcasting it live to the nation and the world. The new program’s state-of-the-art, high-definition studio will feature cutting-edge digital technologies, and will be located on the ground floor of the CBS Broadcast Center.
In addition, for the first time in its stoic history, the CBS Broadcast Center will receive a facelift with the installation of new floor-to-ceiling windows on 57th Street, one of Manhattan’s busiest and most prominent thoroughfares. The windows, a distinctive feature of the newsroom designed for the morning broadcast, will offer the public a first-of-its-kind, behind-the-scenes view of the teamwork and technology involved in broadcasting the news as it unfolds.
