Nate Burleson, a former NFL player, has joined CBS This Morning.

Former NFL player Nate Burleson has been hired as one of the three co-hosts of CBS News’ morning show, “CBS This Morning.” Burleson has hosted “Good Morning Football” on the NFL Network and has been an analyst on “The NFL Today,” CBS’ Sunday afternoon studio show during the season, since 2017.
He’ll continue to play football for CBS.
Starting next month, he’ll be on “CBS This Morning” with Gayle King and Tony Dokoupil.
Anthony Mason, the team’s third member, will be in charge of culture reporting for the network.
Burleson’s employment is the first significant personnel move by CBS News’ new leadership team — Neeraj Khemlani and Wendy McMahon — and Shawna Thomas, the executive producer of “CBS This Morning.” Burleson is the second former NFL player on a network morning show: Michael Strahan is a major part of ABC’s “Good Morning America.”
The CBS morning program will relocate into a new studio that was previously held by MTV next month, putting it across Times Square from one of its competitors, ABC’s “Good Morning America.”
