It didn't take long for one Minneapolis station to shake up the Anchor team after a bad May book in the Mornings.

WCCO is replacing morning and noon Anchors Angela Davis and Mike Binkley (pictured) with Jason DeRusha and Jamie Yuccas.

Davis and Brinkley have been doing the morning shift for the past 5 years. Both will remain at the station, co-hosting the Sunday-night news editions and filling in for other anchors.

The change comes after WCCO's 6 a.m newscast came in third in demo during the May book.  

In all the other time slots the station is 1st or second.

News Director Mike Caputa did his best to spin the demotions of Davis and Brinkley.

"This wasn't about performance," Caputa said. "But we want to be in a position to grow. Expectations are high here to do better in the morning."

The Anchor changes will take place June 2
