KPRC Alum Chris Wragge New Anchor For CBS' Morning Show
Chris Wragge, who was a sports anchor at KPRC for six years -- and is the only person to ask Hair Balls how he'd feel if his wife did a nude scene in the movies -- is moving on up.
He is replacing Harry Smith as co-anchor on CBS' Early Show, also known as "Oh, CBS has a morning show, too?"
Wragge has been co-anchoring the Saturday version of the show and has been the news anchor on WCBS in New York.
He was married to Playboy model Victoria Silvstedt while he was here at KPRC, and there were reports at one time he was barring her from doing nude scenes in a long-forgotten movie.

We asked him about it and he said it wasn't true, but it was obvious he wasn't entirely comfortable with her baring herself for the public.
"Speak to me as a normal American male," he said to us. "Would you want your wife doing a nude scene?"
We forgive him for his prurient interest in our wife, and wish him the best at his new job. We're big-hearted that way.
