Hori will be quick to the anchor desk at Miami's WFOR-TV

Former CBS11 anchor Shannon Hori (right) replaces Maggie Rodriguez and will team with Eliott Rodriguez at Miami's WFOR-TV.

Just 10 days after leaving CBS11's early morning show, Shannon Hori will be staying up late as the 6 and 11 p.m. co-anchor of CBS station WFOR-TV in Miami.

Hori, whose first day is Monday (June 25), takes the chair vacated by Maggie Rodriguez, who on June 2nd became the new co-anchor of CBS' Saturday Early Show. Hori's co-anchor is holdover Eliott Rodriguez, no relation to Maggie.

Her new boss, WFOR vice president/station manager Tom Doerr, was news director at CBS11 in Dallas when Hori joined the station in July 2004 to team with Doug Dunbar in the early mornings. She came to D-FW from NBC station WESH-TV in Orlando, FL.

CBS11 hasn't named Hori's replacement yet. Anchor/reporter Ginger Allen lately has been joining newcomer Scott Sams from 5 to 7 a.m.

Hori said goodbye to area viewers on June 15. For those who missed it, here's the video.
