CBS debuts morning show with Charlie Rose, others

PASADENA, Calif. (AP) — CBS News debuted its new "CBS This Morning" program on Monday, its latest attempt to climb out of third place in the network morning show competition.

Hosts Charlie Rose, Gayle King and Erica Hill sat at a circular glass table in a new studio constructed at CBS' New York headquarters. Rose presented the day's "eye opener" at the top, a minute-long clip package of what was new in the world, from Republican debate sparring in New Hampshire to Tim Tebow's winning touchdown pass in the NFL playoffs.

Jan Crawford reported from New Hampshire. Rose interviewed GOP contender Newt Gingrich and debriefed chief Washington correspondent Bob Schieffer. Scott Pelley followed up on a "60 Minutes" report from the night before. They also reviewed online headlines from around the world.

CBS has long trailed NBC's "Today" show and ABC's "Good Morning America" in the morning ratings.

CBS also announced Monday Lee Woodruff as a contributor to the morning show. Woodruff, wife of ABC correspondent Bob Woodruff, has been active on issues including family, parenting and veterans.
