Josh Elliott is joining CBS News as an anchor of CBSN and will also appear on other network platforms. Elliot has now been with ABC, NBC and CBS in a two-year span.

The former “Good Morning America” co-host’s most recent stint was at NBC and he also spent time at ESPN early in his career. CBSN is the network’s 24/7 digital streaming news service, as an anchor later this month.

“I am deeply honored to be joining CBS News, and truly excited to be a part of the broadening horizon of CBSN, for which the possibilities are thankfully endless,” Elliott said.

Elliott wrote for Sports Illustrated before spending seven years at ESPN. He surprised the industry by leaving ABC for NBC, where he never settled in with a particular role. Elliot now heads to CBSN which launched in 2014.

“CBSN is the future of news, and we are thrilled to have Josh on our team,” said David Rhodes, President of CBS News. “Josh will bring tremendous passion to anchoring, reporting and connecting with this new and fast-growing audience.”
