New "Early Show" Anchors: And So They Begin!

The anticipation was building, and so was the buzz.

Now, they're finally here: the new "The Early Show" anchor team!

Chris Wragge and Erica Hill assumed their roles as anchors, as did Jeff Glor as news anchor and Marysol Castro as weather anchor on Monday.

Right off the bat, Hill interviewed CBS News political analyst John Dickerson about prospects for the soon-to-convene 112th Congress, and Wragge questioned Michael Lohan about reports his daughter, Lindsay, is getting out of rehab anytime now. Glor did his first stint as news anchor, and Castro as weather anchor.

And Castro jumped right in -- literally -- to frigid ocean waters with the famous Polar Bears Club! She filed a piece on the experience. Wragge joked that when he pretended to scold her and said, "Go jump in the lake!," Castro took it too far!

Viewers got some insight into the anchors as people when they revealed their 2011 New Year's resolutions:
