Brian Applegate has been named senior broadcast producer and Matthew Glick has been named senior producer of CBS THIS MORNING, it was announced by Chris Licht, Vice President, Programming, CBS News and Executive Producer of CBS THIS MORNING.
“Brian has terrific news judgment, and now you’ll see that on a bigger platform,” said Licht. “He is also a great leader and control room pro.”
“I’ve known Matt for years, and I know that his drive and personality will mesh perfectly with the CBS THIS MORNING team,” Licht added. “I’m very pleased we were able to bring his talents here to head up our stellar booking department. His seasoned editorial voice will be a great addition to the senior team.”
