The WCBS 880 Working Women’s Luncheon will now feature WCBS TV’s Kristine Johnson. As the co-anchor of CBS2’s 5pm and 11pm newscast, Kristine is one of the most trusted news anchors in our community. We’re excited to hear the inspiring story of how she rose to the top of her profession.
The WCBS 880 Working Women’s Luncheon is hosted by WCBS Newsradio 880’s Morning News Anchor Pat Carroll. This event, now it’s 14th year is designed to foster and promote the success of women in the workplace, and has become famous for its networking and inspiring programs. Due to an unavoidable scheduling conflict, Sandra Lee can no longer take part in this event.
Kristine 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 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.
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.
Pat’s is the first voice countless listeners in the tri-state hear each day. In nearly two decades as morning anchor on WCBS 880, with nearly two million listeners a week, audiences have relied on her to help them start the day. They hear late-breaking news developments, first word of traffic tie-ups, and guidance on how to dress for the weather. And listeners know Pat will help them through big events, like Hurricane Sandy, for which WCBS was recognized with the Edward R. Murrow Award for Best Newscast the morning after the storm.
Pat is the co-host of the WCBS Opening Bell Report, a daily half-hour business program which includes her two-time Gracie Award-winning “Women in Business” reports.
She has hosted the WCBS Working Women’s Luncheon since it started in 2001, moderating a dialogue connecting an audience of high achievers with accomplished women in the entrepreneurial and corporate worlds.
Listeners to CBS radio stations around the country can hear Pat dispense parenting advice on the Westwood One Radio Network-Parents Magazine daily feature “Raising our Kids.”
Pat is on the advisory board of The Center for Safety and Change, formerly known as The Rockland Family Shelter. She was born in Rhode Island and is a graduate of Brown University. Pat raised her two sons in Rockland County and now lives in Princeton, New Jersey.
