CBS O&O WBBM is shaking up their morning newscast....again. 

The station announced that beginning June 26, Marissa Bailey will join Erin Kennedy as co-anchor of the station's early morning and 11 a.m. weekday newscasts. Bailey had been a weekend morning news anchor and has been with the station since 2012. 

Bailey replaces Lionel Moise, who fronted the early morning newscast for the last time on Friday.

Moise, an import from South Carolina, had been in the early morning news anchor slot since 2015.

A WBBM spokeswoman said Moise is leaving to pursue other opportunities (Sure he is.....).

Reporter Suzanne LeMignot has been tapped as sole anchor of the station's  weekend morning newscasts alongside meteorologist Ed Curran.

LeMignot also will continue to handle some general assignment reporting during the week.
