John Dickerson replacing Charlie Rose at 'CBS This Morning'

John Dickerson replacing Charlie Rose at 'CBS This Morning'

John Dickerson, anchor of "Face the Nation", will 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.

He will join Norah O'Donnell and Gayle King on the morning show. Dickerson will be replaced on Face the Nation.

It was announced Tuesday by David Rhodes, president of CBS News.

"Every time I've been on the show, I haven't wanted the conversation with Norah and Gayle to end when my segment does", Dickerson said.




"Few people possess John's intellect, curiosity and journalistic chops", Ryan Kadro, executive producer of CBS This Morning, said.

Dickerson will join CBS This Morning as the network continues to recover from Rose's downfall, after the Washington Post and other outlets reported allegations of years of sexual misconduct by Rose against dozens of women in November. CBS appointed Dickerson on the sixth anniversary of the morning show, which is in third place in the morning ratings but has made inroads with a newsy approach.

He had been political director for CBS News since 2011, and an on-air political analyst for CBS News since 2009. Hill was later replaced by Norah O'Donnell, and now Dickerson will replace Rose, making King the only original host.

Photo John Dickerson has an understated style that belies a shrewdness honed by years of campaign and Washington reporting. "I've worked alongside John for nearly 20 years and this is a great way to continue our mission of putting the news back in the morning". Before joining CBS, he covered the George W. Bush administration for Time before moving on to write on politics for Slate. "CBS This Morning" is in its closest competitive position with "Today" in at least three decades and in almost two decades. CBS News will name a successor for him at "Face the Nation".
