Veteran Anchor Randy Meier Lands Gig in WCBS Shuffle

By Andrew Gauthier Comment


Randy Meier, late of KSTP and MSNBC, is returning to the airwaves in New York City–at least for a week. Meier, was a daytime anchor at MSNBC for 3 years, from 2003-2006. He joined the network from KSTP-TV where he was main anchor.

Viewers have not seen much of Meier since, but TVSpy has learned he’ll be filling in on WCBS-TV in New York the week between Christmas and New Years.

The Emmy and Murrow award-winning reporter and anchor will be co-anchoring with Dana Tyler on the 6 & 11 newscasts as WCBS begins its own revolving door. Tonight is Chris Wragge‘s final night as an anchor on the station as he begins a coast-to-coast publicity tour before taking over as co-anchor of CBS’s “The Early Show” January 3. Maurice Dubois moves from early mornings to main co-anchor at WCBS alongside Kristine Johnson.
