THIS WEEK IN PANDEMIC CONSEQUENCES PT. 2

With the CBS Broadcast Center shut down because of two CBS employees tested positive for the coronavirus, the local station had to do a little dancing for its morning newscast.

Morning anchor Chris Wragge anchored the program solo from the CBSN New York studio.

But not before viewers of the 4 a.m. hour were greeted with with CBSN Boston anchors anchoring.

“With the CBS Broadcast Center apparently evacuated, WCBS-TV aired the first few minutes of WBZ Boston’s morning newscast at 4:30 a.m.,” a viewer noted on Twitter.


All morning long, Wragge posted on social media, thanking viewers for tuning in and being patient with an unprecedented morning.
