CBS News has named Maggie Rodriguez to replace Hannah Storm as coanchor of The Early Show. Rodriguez is getting a shot on the weekday show after impressing CBS News brass with her work as a fill-in and as coanchor of the The Saturday Early Show. "In the past six months, Maggie has proved to be a remarkably good fit in morning news," CBS News president Sean McManus said in a statement. Rodriguez was a veteran of local news in Miami and Los Angeles before joining the network earlier this year. She joins Early Show coanchors Harry Smith and Julie Chen on Jan. 7. - Stephen Battaglio
