On Monday, Cecilia proudly posted a picture of herself in a 60 Minutes baseball hat.

Only the bottom half of her face was shown and she wore a blue sweater.

The GMA alum captioned the post: “First day at the new school— plus a @ricardozjimenez drop off (though he forgot to pack my lunch). @60minutes Let’s do this!”

The second thing on the Instagram post was a video of Cecilia walking across the street to the CBS News building.

She wore a long blue sweater dress, black boots, and a long winter coat.

The 46-year-old had a bag on each shoulder.

When the journalist got to the door, she was greeted by another woman and they hugged.

Her GMA co-stars were very supportive of her switch.

Michael Strahan simply commented with clapping emojis.

Lara Spencer told her to “Go get ’em girl!”

Janai Norman said: “Miss you.”

And Gio Benitez commented: “The drop off!!””

Many other ABC anchors wished her good luck in the comments.


Cecilia also posted to her Instagram story about the new job.

In it, she took a selfie with her hand resting on her chin.

The journalist wore glasses and smiled at the camera.

She captioned the photo: “Hi from my new office. But mostly, this is the post to document the fact that I did my hair and put on real clothes for the first time in two months. WE BACK.”

The next slide showed her husband, Ricardo Jimenez, repping 60 Minutes gear.

He wore a hat and a zip up jacket and pointed to the logo on the jacket.

“Very proud recipient @ricardojimenez,” Cecilia captioned the post.

He also posted the video of Cecilia walking into the CBS News building.

Ricardo captioned it: “Tick tick tock. @ceciliavega60 ‘s vacation is over and it’s time to start the next chapter @60minutes.”

He is a retired California Highway Patrol Officer.

They have been married for a long time and do not have any children together.


The news of Cecilia leaving GMA and ABC first arrived back in January.

Deadline first reported the news that she will be starting on the evening show in the spring.

The journalist will be heading from New York to Washington DC, and will be the only reporter for 60 Minutes based in the capital.

In a statement to Deadline, the 46-year-old said: “This is a dream come true.

“I am beyond honored to join the ranks of this legendary show and to work alongside the best reporters in journalism.”

Bill Owens, executive producer of 60 Minutes, told the outlet that Cecilia is a “sensational storyteller.

“I have admired her work for a long, long time and couldn’t be more excited to welcome her to 60 Minutes.

“Her new colleagues couldn’t agree more.”

Aside from GMA, Cecilia has also anchored the Saturday edition of World News Tonight.
