Dickerson Set to Replace Rose on 'CBS This Morning'

John Dickerson will replace Charlie Rose on "CBS This Morning", effective Wednesday, CBS News President David Rhodes announced Tuesday, January 9, 2018. The broadcast icon was terminated by CBS News after The Washington Post revealed that in an investigation that Rose had multiple accounts of sexual misconduct.

"On the campaign trail, I've collected compliments about "CBS This Morning's" commitment to the news for years now", Dickerson said. It's not known if Dickerson would continue his Sunday talk show, a role he's filled since 2015 after taking over for Bob Schieffer.

Dickerson, now host of the long-running Sunday public affairs show "Face the Nation", will "transition off" that program in the coming weeks, then a successor will be named, according to CBS. Rose was sacked by CBS and other employers in November after the Washington Post reported on a series of harassment allegations in Rose's past. Before joining CBS, he covered the George W. Bush administration for Time before moving on to write on politics for Slate.

He will be counted on to help CBS keep delivering its most-watched morning news show in decades. Hill was later replaced by Norah O'Donnell, and now Dickerson will replace Rose, making King the only original host.

"This Morning" has the smallest audience of the three main morning shows on USA broadcast television with a daily audience of about 3.6 million. But NBC moved more quickly naming his replacement, decided not go go with another male co-host and opting instead for Hoda Kotb, who is very familiar to, and well liked by Today show viewers.

In response to the stories, CBS severed ties with Rose, who also contributed to the network's long-running newsmagazine 60 Minutes, with PBS dropping his eponymous interview show.
