CBS says Bianna Golodryga leaving morning show, network
NEW YORK (AP) — CBS News says that Bianna Golodryga, one of the four hosts on “CBS This Morning,” is leaving the show and the network.
CBS on Wednesday confirmed a Huffington Post report about Golodryga’s exit. She was told on Monday that CBS News President Susan Zirinsky had different ideas for the show, and was offered other work, but decided to leave CBS instead.
She was added last fall to the three other co-hosts, Gayle King, Norah O’Donnell and John Dickerson.
CBS’ morning show had been rising in the ratings with a newsy approach compared to rivals “Good Morning America” and the “Today” show, but lost momentum when Charlie Rose was fired after sexual misconduct allegations surfaced.
Golodryga’s agent did not immediately return a message seeking comment.
