How ‘CBS This Morning’ Finally Became a Player in the Morning News Race

30 October 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

On a recent morning when the world is curious about the Republican candidates gearing up for a run at President, the transition of late-night hosts at Comedy Central and terrorism in the Middle East, Chris Licht knows just what to offer: Rock songs.

Licht, a former disc jockey, will over the course of two hours hunkered in a darkened studio on New York’s West 57th Street, pair news reports on the aforementioned items and more with a range of popular tunes. A segment about online dating scams debuts to the strains of Edwin Starr’s “A Girl Like You.” “Two Princes” by the Spin Doctors alerts viewers to a peek at newly born Prince George of England. “Midnight Train To Georgia” by Gladys Knight and the Pips introduces a segment about President Jimmy Carter. And Styx’s “Mr. Roboto” lends oomph to a news story about robots in Japan. »
