It's not quite the magnitude of the shake up ousting Ann Curry from the "Today" show hosting couch, but the "CBS This Morning" show is shifting people around, too.

CBS News Chief White House Correspondent Norah O'Donnell has been named co-host of the program, it was announced by CBS News Chairman and 60 MINUTES Executive Producer Jeff Fager and CBS News President David Rhodes. O'Donnell will join co-hosts Charlie Rose and Gayle King beginning this fall.

Erica Hill, who served as a co-host of the recently revamped show, is in discussions regarding a new role.

From the CBS press release: Norah O'Donnell has been CBS News' Chief White House Correspondent since June 2011. She will leave the White House to assume her new role. O'Donnell will continue as the principal substitute anchor for FACE THE NATION and will continue to report for all CBS News broadcasts and platforms.

Before joining CBS News, O'Donnell was the Chief Washington Correspondent for MSNBC and a contributing correspondent for NBC's "Today." She joined NBC News in 1999. Earlier in her career, O'Donnell was a staff reporter for the Capitol Hill newspaper Roll Call.

CBS THIS MORNING is produced daily from a state-of-the-art studio at the historic CBS Broadcast Center in New York City, which has been the headquarters for CBS News for nearly half a century.
