John Dickerson to replace Charlie Rose at 'CBS This Morning'

CBS Aims to Boost Video-Streaming News Hub CBSN in 2018

CBS announced on Tuesday that John Dickerson will replace the ousted Charlie Rose as the third co-host of CBS This Morning, joining Gayle King and Norah O'Donnell. "He's the flawless complement to Gayle and Norah".

By naming Dickerson, a veteran Beltway journalist who often provides historical analysis in his coverage, CBS News is sending a signal that its morning program will retain its positioning as a hard-news alternative to the other broadcast networks' offerings in that time slot. "Colleagues, newsmakers, and peers all appreciate the depth and context John Dickerson brings to every discussion of the day's events-together with his co-hosts he will project our best values on every broadcast". Dickerson will move to NY as part of this new duties, and is expected to cede the "Nation" spot to a new anchor, Rhodes said in a memo to staff Tuesday.

The CBS journalist was raised by Nancy Dickerson, the first female member of the Washington TV news corps. CBS News will name a successor for him at "Face the Nation". "I am greatly embarrassed".

Rose acknowledged in a statement following the Post report that he had "behaved insensitively" at times, but said that some of the allegations were not accurate.

And yet, the program has proved to be of growing strategic importance to the network. Last week its "Today" show named Hoda Kotb as co-host, formally replacing Matt Lauer, who was sacked for what NBC called "inappropriate sexual behavior in the workplace".

CBS has yet to comment on the report.

Dickerson has enjoyed a fairly quick rise among the CBS News ranks in recent years.

Dickerson has worked for CBS since 2009, initially as a political analyst before becoming political director in 2011, and succeeding Bob Schieffer on "Face the Nation" in 2015. Most recently he was Slate Magazine's chief political correspondent winning the Ford Prize for Distinguished Reporting on the Presidency.
