Viewers and fans of WCBS’s morning newcast CBS2 News This Morning may have noticed a switch up Monday as Alex Denis returned to the show after several months off for maternity leave. Since joining the team in January 2012, Alex has been covering traffic every weekday morning from 4:30-7AM. Since her maternity leave began back in February, Jill Nicolini has been filling in for her on weekday mornings. Nicolini just recently joined the morning team over at CBS2’s sister station WLNY TV10/55 to cover traffic for their morning show Live From The Couch. We’ve just recently learned that from now on, Nicolini will continue to cover traffic on both CBS2 from 4:30-7AM and on WLNY 10/55 from 7-9AM. This is no surprise since Jill has a history with New York’s morning commute after covering traffic for several years over at WPIX. What began on Monday for Denis is a new segment called "Now Trending with Alex Denis”. Basically, every morning during the shows 5 & 6AM hours, Alex will join Chris Wragge & Mary Calvi at the anchor desk to discuss what’s trending with entertainment news and on social media. Denis is quoted on-air saying that, “instead of following traffic on the roads, I’ll now be following all the latest social media traffic.” Her segments will include reading posts and tweets from viewers on the air and following all the latest hashtags trending. These new segments won’t just keep her in Studio 46, several days she’ll be out in the community checking out the best places to eat and whatever else she decides to cover. She’s encouraging viewers to get involved in the conversation via Twitter and to also tweet her with story ideas. Her twitter handle is @AlexDenisTV.
