For nearly 30 years, Barbara Rodgers was one of the most recognizable newscasters on CBS 5 Eyewitness News. She started at the station in 1979 and quickly became a popular, award-winning anchor, reporter and show host. Before leaving CBS 5 in 2008, she was co-anchor of Eyewitness News at Noon and host of Bay Sunday, a weekly public affairs program where she interviewed dozens of newsmakers, community leaders and celebrities, including Spike Lee, Terry McMillan, Delroy Lindo and Jamie Foxx. She also was a reporter for the Jefferson Awards, given each week to people who have done outstanding public service. Many viewers still remember her years as the co-anchor of CBS 5’s weekend newscasts with the late Doug Murphy from 1987 to 2000.
