John Dickerson replacing Charlie Rose at 'CBS This Morning'

Adjust Comment Print

"Face the Nation" host John Dickerson will join current co-hosts Gayle King and Norah O'Donnell on CBS' weekday morning show, the Huffington Post reported. It is unclear if Dickerson will continue to host the CBS Sunday news show as he joins "CBS This Morning". In 2015, he was named host of "Face the Nation", succeeding its legendary host and anchor, Bob Schieffer.

Dickerson joined CBS News in April 2009 as an analyst and contributor to all of the network's broadcasts and platforms.

U.S. television channel CBS announced today that its shamed millionaire news anchor, sacked for alleged sexual harassment, had been replaced by another man after its higher-rated rival appointed a woman.

Dickerson will begin Wednesday, and will relocate to be in NY full-time.

Rhodes continued to praise King and O'Donnell's leadership on CBS This Morning and believed that the trio would continue to deliver CBS' brand of excellent journalism to the audience every day on the morning news program. During the 2016 presidential campaign he moderated CBS News' two presidential debates and as host of FACE THE NATION, interviewed each of the major candidates multiple times.

His appointment comes after NBC named Hoda Kotb to replace its own shamed morning star, Matt Lauer, on "Today", now the most watched morning cable news show in the United States.

Tuesday happens to be the six-year anniversary of "CBS This Morning".

USA TODAY has contacted representatives from CBS This Morning for comment.
