Bianna Golodryga, one of four co-hosts on “CBS This Morning,” is leaving the show and the network, both parties announced Wednesday.
“Bianna Golodryga has decided to leave the network,” a CBS News spokesperson said in a statement. “We thank her for her many contributions during her time here at CBS News and wish her the very best in her future endeavors.”
Golodryga tweeted Wednesday afternoon that “I’ve enjoyed my time @CBSNews, but it is now the right moment for me to move on. I’m grateful for the friends and colleagues I’ve worked with @CBSThisMorning, and wish everyone the best. On to the next chapter!”
CBS’ morning show had been rising in the ratings with a newsy approach compared to rivals “Good Morning America” and the “Today” show, but lost momentum when Charlie Rose was fired after sexual misconduct allegations surfaced.
Three months into Zirinsky’s job, her efforts to create her own vision for the network have become uncomfortably public, occasionally fueling gossipy stories in the press.
Her top priority has been negotiations to keep King, whose contract expires at the end of the year. King’s string of newsmaking interviews, most notably last month with musician R. Kelly about the sexual misconduct charges against him, have suddenly made her CBS’ indispensable star.
