Andrea Grymes Bumped Off Weekend Anchor Desk at CBS New York

By Kevin Eck 

Longtime WCBS weekend morning anchor Andrea Grymes has been moved off the anchor desk.

Grymes posted the news to social media, saying, “Some bittersweet news- today was my last day anchoring our weekend morning show. The CBS bosses are making some changes, & that includes a new co-anchor for Doug (Williams). I’m disappointed but so thankful for this opportunity & the VIEWERS for watching.”

Grymes joined CBS New York as a general assignment reporter in July 2013.


“I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t disappointed because I absolutely love this job … but such is the nature of the news business,” she wrote on Facebook. “God always has a plan! I’m so grateful to our bosses for trusting me in this chair for the time they have. They’ve offered to let me go back to reporting, so I am figuring out those details.”
