“Face the Nation” host John Dickerson will replace Charlie Rose on “CBS This Morning,” according to a report released Tuesday.
Dickerson joined CBS in 2009 as an analyst and contributor, two years later he was hired as the political director of the network. Dickerson was named the host of “Face The Nation” in 2015 and will now take Rose’s spot on the popular “CBS This Morning,” The Huffington Post reported.
The news comes nearly two months after Rose was accused of sexually harassing eight women in his past, according to The Washington Post. Five of the women claim Rose put his hand on their thighs, and two other women say Rose would walk out of his shower naked while he was around them. The Washington Post report led to CBS cutting ties with Rose.
Rose did not deny any specific allegations, but said he was embarrassed and apologized for his “inappropriate behavior.”
“I deeply apologize for my inappropriate behavior,” Rose said in a statement to WaPo. “In my 45 years in journalism, I have prided myself on being an advocate for the careers of the women with whom I have worked,” he said. “Nevertheless, in the past few days, claims have been made about my behavior toward some former female colleagues.” (RELATED: 8 Women Accuse Charlie Rose Of Sexual Harassment)
Dickerson will be joining Norah O’Donnell and Gayle King as a co-anchor of the third most-watched morning cable news show in the U.S., behind ABC’s “Good Morning America” and NBC’s “Today” show.
