Maggie Rodriguez (born December 12, 1969) is a former co-anchor of the CBS television program, The Early Show, from December 2007 through December 2010. Rodriguez was also a substitute anchor for Katie Couric on The CBS Evening News.[1] Rodriguez was formerly co-anchor of the Saturday edition of The Early Show in 2007.[2]

Rodriguez was born in Miami and grew up in South Florida. She graduated from Our Lady of Lourdes Academy in 1987. She attended American University in Washington, D.C. and graduated from the University of Miami in 1991 with a degree in broadcast journalism and Spanish. Rodriguez and her husband have two children.[3]

From 1991-94, she served as a reporter for the Univision network in Miami. Her career in journalism began at WLTV-DT (1989–90), a Univision owned-and-operated station in Miami, where she was an associate producer, field producer and assignment editor.[2] From 1994 until 2000, Rodriguez was anchor of the midday news and of a weekend news magazine show at KABC-TV in Los Angeles, California. She was a field reporter and covered a wide array of stories, including earthquakes, mudslides and the O.J. Simpson murder trial.[2]

Before joining CBS News, Rodriguez anchored the 5:00 p.m. and 11:00 p.m. newscasts at WFOR-TV, the CBS owned-and-operated station in Miami, from 2000-07. While there, she reported on and anchored coverage of a wide range of major news events, including many hurricanes and, from New York City, the one-year anniversary of the September 11 attacks. Rodriguez was first on the air with coverage of the transfer of power in Cuba from Fidel Castro to his brother, Raul. The newscast received an RTNDA Edward R. Murrow Award for its coverage of that story.[2] Rodriguez has received a total of seven Emmy Awards and two RTNDA Edward R. Murrow Awards.[2]

Rodriguez' alma mater, the University of Miami, awarded her the first-ever "Alpha Epsilon Rho Professional of the Year Award", its top honor for professionals in the communication industry. She also is the recipient of the Hispanic Heritage Council’s "Young Hispanic Leadership Award" for professional accomplishments and community service.[2]
