Biography

American TV and radio personality best known for being on the CBS network Morning show for 16 years, from 1987 to 2002. He's also known for his stint as the host of A&E's Live by Request.

McEwen worked for CBS starting in 1987 with CBS This Morning. In addition to doing the weather, he was the entertainment reporter as well. McEwen covered 16 Oscars, Grammys, Golden Globes and Country Music Association awards shows. He was awarded the CMA Media Achievement Award in 1992. McEwen has interviewed five presidents: Bill Clinton, George Herbert Walker Bush, Jimmy Carter, Richard Nixon, and Gerald Ford. McEwen left CBS in October 2002 as The Early Show was completely revamped.

In 2005, McEwen suffered a stroke that ended his stint as a news anchor. McEwen had to learn to walk and talk again after the stroke, and the former right-hander now uses his left hand for most tasks. In 2008, he published a book about his health challenges, Change in the Weather: Life after Stroke. McEwen was named a Stroke Ambassador in 2009 by the American Stroke Association for his "advocacy, leadership, achievement and philanthropy."
