Rob Morrison's Anchor Seat

There's a land rush to fill the morning news anchor vacancy at WCBS-2 in New York, following the "resignation" of Rob Morrison.

“The place is getting flooded with tapes and résumés from out of town,” said one CBS employee. “But everyone thinks the job will get filled from the inside.”

The New York Post points to weekend anchor Cindy Hsu as the favorite, although viewers seem to favor former CBS Morning News anchor Chris Wragge, who has been filling in since Morrison's departure. But Wragge has a clause in his contract that requires him to anchor in prime time.

Former WPIX anchor Jim Watkins and ex-WNBC anchor Sue Simmons were also mentioned.

Sue Simmons would be awesome, but she's probably still sobering up at that hour.

This is Ron Corning's chance to get back in the big leagues after being stuck in the sticks for the last few years!

Wragge will be happy whatever anchor slot he gets, as long as Lonnie Quinn does the weather with him.

We hear Wragge's got the job, since he's used to being awake at that hour (don't forget, he left the local news to host CBS This Morning AND did the network weekend morning show for quite a while).

Don Dahler gets bumped from anchoring weekends to Wragge's weeknight slots (including the 9:00 pm news on WLNY 55).

The question is: who gets Dahler's weekends? That will probably be Hsu.
