NEW YORK (AP) -- Monday morning has dawned with a new team at CBS' "The Early Show."

The new lineup consists of former Saturday "Early Show" anchors Chris Wragge and Erica Hill, as well as weathercaster Marysol Castro, formerly of ABC's "Good Morning America" weekend edition. CBS News correspondent Jeff Glor is the news reader.

Hill greeted viewers by expressing hope that their New Year's resolutions will include watching "The Early Show" every morning.

In November, CBS abruptly announced a complete makeover as its latest attempt to freshen the show. Veteran host Harry Smith made his final appearance last Friday.

"The Early Show" consistently trails its breakfast-hour rivals, ratings champ "Today" on NBC and "Good Morning America."
