CBS appoints John Dickerson as Rose's replacement

He will be counted on to help CBS keep delivering its most-watched morning news show in decades.

CBS News anchor John Dickerson will replace Charlie Rose as a co-host on CBS This Morning, the president of CBS News announced Tuesday. The preparation for the morning show would take up too much time. It's not known if Dickerson would continue his Sunday talk show, a role he's filled since 2015 after taking over for Bob Schieffer.

Now Mr. Dickerson, who until recently was better known as a writer than as the host of the CBS Sunday show "Face the Nation", is leaving Washington and embarking on a new phase in his career: the Manhattan-centric world of morning TV.

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 US, behind ABC's "Good Morning America" and NBC's "Today" show.

Rose was sacked by CBS - and PBS and Bloomberg - in November after several women came forward to the Washington Post with accusations of sexual harassment and unwanted advancements. "He's the ideal complement to Gayle and Norah and will help us continue the momentum CBS This Morning has achieved over the last six years". Hill was later replaced by Norah O'Donnell, and now Dickerson will replace Rose, making King the only original host. But with "CBS This Morning", the network is in a better competitive position against "Today" and "GMA" than ever before. CBS News has not announced a replacement for Chaggaris. Dickerson will be replaced on Face the Nation.

NBC is also in a period of change. 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.
