PBS and Bloomberg, which broadcast the "Charlie Rose" show, also said they were terminating their relationships with Rose and canceling distribution of his programs in the aftermath of the misconduct allegations.
Dickerson will join Gayle King and Norah O'Donnell as permanent co-host on the morning broadcast beginning Wednesday, according to statement from CBS News President David Rhodes. "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 is one of a handful of personalities that CBS has been trying out as substitute hosts since Rose's exit. "Can't think of better way to celebrate and kick off our next chapter", King said.
John Dickerson joins CBS This Morning to give his insight on the political stories of the day
"CBS This Morning" is filling the anchor chair vacated by Charlie Rose with a familiar face to CBS viewers. CBS is third behind NBC's "Today" and "Good Morning America" in viewership but has made steady progress in ratings and reputation since it was launched with Rose, O'Donnell and King six years ago. "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". His mother was Nancy Dickerson, CBS' News' first female correspondent and an associate producer on the first broadcast of "Face the Nation" in 1954.
He said that he'll be in Washington later this week to begin the process of finding Dickerson's replacement there.
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. CBS THIS MORNING is in its closest competitive position with "Today" in at least three decades and in almost two decades.
