Ask AP: Harry Smith

Celebrity Q&A
on March 24, 2011

We wonder why Harry Smith left the CBS morning show and where he went. We miss him.
—Max & Jinny Tavernier, Constantine, Mich.

The decision for Smith, 59, to leave The Early Show was made by CBS News, which replaced him, along with Maggie Rodriguez and weatherman Dave Price, with Chris Wragge, Erica Hill, Jeff Glor and Marysol Castro. Of his departure, Smith said he was disappointed that he couldn’t stick around to help the third-place morning show pull up its ratings. “It’s a tough racket,” he says. “There’s only so much audience to go around.” He now serves as a substitute on the CBS Evening News, Face the Nation and CBS Sunday Morning.
