CBS This Morning is shaking up its co-host lineup, with Nate Burleson joining the show in September.
Burleson will join Gayle King and Tony Dokoupil on the show. Burleson had guest hosted the show in May.
Anthony Mason, co-host since 2019, will shift to a role as reporter on culture.
The network said that Burleson will continue as an analyst on The NFL Today. He joined CBS Sports in 2017.
Burleson’s new role was part of a new agreement with the network for the former NFL player. It also includes appearances on Nickelodeon, while he’ll have an expanded role on the NFL Network.
The changes are the latest for the show since Shawna Thomas joined as executive producer earlier this year, with plans to move to a new Times Square studio this fall. They also are the latest changes at the news division since Neeraj Khemlani and Wendy McMahon were named president and co-heads of the newly combined CBS News and Stations.
In a memo to staffers on Wednesday, Khemlani wrote, “There is a lot in development, and Shawna and I will be taking her team through some of the key changes today. We’re excited to take mornings on CBS in a direction that allows the journalism and storytelling we do so well to continue to lead the conversation and define the culture of our times.”
