María Elena Salinas will have a much more visible role next week at CBS.
The former longtime Univision anchor made her debut as a CBS News contributor earlier this month on “CBS This Morning.” Now, she’ll be co-hosting the two-hour morning show, which airs from 7 to 9 am ET/PT.
Salinas will fill in for Gayle King, who will be off next week.
She will only co-host the show September 2-4, because she will then attend the NAHJ convention in San Antonio where she is scheduled to be on two panels.
Since joining the network, Salinas has also reported for the CBS Evening News.
