John Dickerson to Replace Charlie Rose on 'CBS This Morning'

John Dickerson to Replace Charlie Rose on 'CBS This Morning'

The announcement, from CBS News president David Rhodes on Tuesday, comes more than a month after Rose was sacked from the network amid allegations of sexual misconduct.

John Dickerson was named co-anchor of "CBS This Morning" Tuesday, replacing Charlie Rose, who was forced out in mid-November following sexual misconduct allegations.

"John's impressive track record and strong all-around journalism extends our commitment to real news coverage every morning at CBS News", said David Rhodes, president of CBS News. Before joining CBS, he covered the George W. Bush administration for Time before moving on to write on politics for Slate.

Dickerson will no longer host his Washington-based Sunday morning political show. Hill was later replaced by Norah O'Donnell, and now Dickerson will replace Rose, making King the only original host.

Dickerson joined CBS in 2009 as an analyst and contributor and was tapped to serve as the network's political director in 2011. "Gayle and Norah continue to show tremendous leadership on our morning broadcast each day".

The CBS journalist was raised by Nancy Dickerson, the first female member of the Washington TV news corps.

CBS THIS MORNING has earned a prestigious Peabody Award, a Polk Award, three News & Documentary Emmys, three Daytime Emmys and the 2017 Edward R. Murrow Award for Best Newscast. 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.

Charlie Rose was also fired from his eponymous PBS show, and was replaced by Christiane Amanpour in early December.

Dickerson is expected to continue his duties as Face the Nation moderator.
