NEW YORK (AP) - CBS' "Early Show" is ending early in the new year, and now its successor has a name.

CBS News announced on Thursday that the replacement morning broadcast will be called "CBS This Morning."

The program will be hosted by Charlie Rose, Gayle King and Erica Hill. It is being pitched as a serious-news alternative to ratings leader "The Today Show" on NBC, and ABC's "Good Morning America," the audience runner-up.

"CBS This Morning," airing weekdays from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. Eastern time, will premiere Jan. 9.
