Josh Elliott is joining CBS News as an anchor of CBSN and will also appear on other network platforms. Elliot has now been with ABC, NBC and CBS in a two-year span.
The former "Good Morning America" co-host's most recent stint was at NBC and he also spent time at ESPN early in his career. CBSN is the network's 24/7 digital streaming news service, as an anchor later this month.
Elliott wrote for Sports Illustrated before spending seven years at ESPN. He surprised the industry by leaving ABC for NBC, where he never settled in with a particular role. Elliot now heads to CBSN which launched in 2014.

Roberts has said goodbye to "Good Morning America," but only for a while. The "GMA" anchor made her final appearance Thursday before going on medical leave for a bone marrow transplant. Roberts' departure was first planned for Friday, but she chose to exit a day early to visit her ailing mother in Mississippi. In July she first disclosed that she has MDS, a blood and bone marrow disease. She will be hospitalized next week to prepare for the transplant. The donor will be her older sister, Sally-Ann Roberts.
