Rebecca Jarvis, who grew up in Minneapolis, won't get to sleep in over the weekends. She's just been named newsreader for the Saturday edition of CBS's "The Early Show." She'll also serve as business and economics correspondent for the network.
Jarvis first came into the national spotlight when she finished second on "The Apprentice." In 2006, she joined CNBC where she covered major events including the Bernard Madoff scandal and the sale of Merrill Lynch.
"Rebecca does an outstanding job reporting on critical business and consumer affairs and we are delighted that she is joining CBS News," said Sean McManus, president of CBS news and sports. "Rebecca is rigorous and precise and communicates complex economic and financial issues with clarity and in a manner that relates and matters to viewers."
