“Thank you for having me,” said Westin at the start of the show. “It’s good be with friends.”
Westin anchors Bloomberg’s morning show Daybreak, but got permission from his bosses there to fill in on CBS.
He will be a substitute host a few times this summer, we’re told, while frequent fill-in Anthony Mason is anchoring the CBS Evening News. Jeff Glor, WCBS anchor Maurice Dubois, and others will also fill-in on the morning show when Rose is away this summer.
