1999: 'The Early Show' Begins on CBS
November 1, 2020  | By TV WW
 
On this day in 1999, CBS revamped its morning show lineup to present a new show, more like NBC’s Today, that mixed hard news with softer feature stories and segments.

The primary host of The Early Show was Bryant Gumbel, a long-time veteran of Today, paired with relative newcomer Jane Clayson. Doing weather duties was Mark McEwen, and the news desk anchor was Julie Chen, who eventually ascended to co-host status herself, as well as hosting CBS’s prime-time reality series, Big Brother.

The Early Show ran until January 2012, hosted by a succession of morning teams, and was replaced with CBS This Morning.
