Kristine Johnson

KristineJohnsongreybckKristine Johnson currently co-anchors the 5 p.m. & 11 p.m. news at the CBS owned and operated station in New York City.  She joined CBS 2 in the fall of 2006. Since then, she has been nominated for several Emmy Awards and had the honor of winning seven trophies.

Kristine has navigated her viewers through numerous breaking news events.  Most recently she logged 10-12-hour days behind the anchor desk covering Hurricane Sandy and the blizzard of 2013. She also covered live stories ranging from Pope Benedict’s visit to the Big Apple to the miracle landing on the Hudson. Kristine has field anchored several historic events, including breaking news coverage from ground zero after the capture and killing of Osama bin Laden and the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks with former President George W. Bush and current President Barack Obama in attendance. She broadcasted live in the days following the shooting massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn.  And she traveled to Boston to broadcast live following the bombings at the Boston Marathon.

CBS has called upon Kristine to guest co-host the daytime talk show “The Talk” from time to time. She also played the role of a news anchor (a real stretch!) on episodes of the CBS hit prime time shows “Person of Interest” and “Elementary.”

In 1994, Kristine began her career at WPRI in Providence, R.I.  She was hired as a part-time assignment editor. Over the next 10 years she would transition to several positions in the news room, while always keeping her goal of reporting in sight. From the assignment desk she became a writer, later an associate producer, then a producer, reporter, and, ultimately, anchoring the very newscasts she once produced.

Kristine left Providence for New York City in 2004. She was hired by MSNBC and anchored daytime coverage. She also served as anchor for NBC’s national broadcast “Early Today.” During that time Kristine also had the honor of appearing on the weekend edition of the “Today Show” as news reader.

Kristine resides in northern New Jersey with her husband and their two children. When she’s not juggling her personal and professional duties, Kristine is honored to represent CBS 2 at various events around the Tri-State Area. She’s worked closely with the greater New York chapters of the Susan G. Komen Race for a Cure, March of Dimes, Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, Down Syndrome Society, The Brain Tumor Foundation and the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Run.
