Josh Elliott CBS News Leaving Exit

Josh Elliott Out at CBS News

Josh Elliott‘s tenure at networks gets shorter and shorter.

The former Good Morning America co-host has left CBS News after not even a year at the network, our sister site Variety reports.

“CBS News and Josh Elliott are parting ways. Josh will no longer be reporting for CBS News. We are grateful for his contributions over the last year, and we wish him the very best in his future endeavors,” CBS News said in a statement.

Last March, CBS News announced that Elliot was joining its 24/7 digital streaming news service, CBSN. His duties would include assisting with live coverage throughout the week, both as an in-studio anchor and in the field.

But on Friday, Elliott announced on-air during his CBSN broadcast that it was his last day at the online venue. Per Page Six, the announcement was a surprise to network executives, who had planned to use Elliott on CBS Evening News and CBS This Morning but who hadn’t yet approved the public dissemination of that information.

Prior to arriving at CBS, Elliott left ABC’s morning chatfest for NBC Sports. His stint at the Peacock net lasted 21 months.

    This guy is horrific! I remember our local ABC news guy making a joke about Miley twerking and Josh Elliott was a complete Arse about it. He was saying he didn’t know how he was going to explain her behaviour to his daughter boo goo. I’ve never liked him and I sincerely hope this is the end of him on ANY station ANYWHERE. And he’s just not that good.

    Did no one learn anything from Star Jones’ career nosedive after she pulled the exact same stunt on The View?

    Poor Josh Elliott. This guy can’t catch a break. What other network gigs would be a perfect fit for him?

    • Television Scout says:

      Home Shopping Network? Public Access Television? Podcast from his living room? Video cam attached to the dashboard of his car for Surcat/Periscope performance?

      Oh well. We wish JE all the best… hopefully he lands on his feet. His next gig may need to be a more localized newscast in one of the many markets in the US. But his national broadcast days may be over… at least for a while.

    He thought he found the greener pasture, instead he has only found misery.

    What does that tell you when someone leaves job after job after job, just sayn

    Dude really seems to know how to burn bridges.

    This is what happens when you’re ego gets in the way and people working for you make you think you’re more talented and a bigger star then you are. He thought he was worth more money at GMA and thought he could get it elsewhere.

  8. Andrea says:

    I like Josh Elliot as a journalist, but the guy has serious issues. He’s gone through ESPN, and every broadcast network except FOX. Something is amiss with him, and I hope he takes stock of where he is so that he can somehow resume his career at some future point.

  9. Aeol says:

    I was wishing him well when he moved on from GMA, but methinks Josh is a diva! Wonder how Liz Cho is going to feel about her man “moving on” yet again?! What a dope.

  10. Barbara LAIRD says:

    Josh Elliot I have been following your career for a while, hoping for the best for you, but now I’m concerned that you are getting in your own way. Now a little motherly advice, slow down thing before you leap, take care of yourself and your career! Still love you!

    I think the correct acronym is PITA.
