John Dickerson To Take Charlie Rose's Spot On 'CBS This Morning'


CBS News anchor John Dickerson has been named co-host of "CBS This Morning", replacing Charlie Rose, who was sacked amid allegations of sexual misconduct.

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. 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.

The CBS journalist was raised by Nancy Dickerson, the first female member of the Washington TV news corps.

The network has used a rotation of anchors that includes Jeff Glor, Vladimir Duthiers, and Bianna Golodryga alongside King and O'Donnell as it searched for Rose's replacement.

9 people go missing in avalanche
Last month, three soldiers went missing when an avalanche hit their outpost Gurez - their bodies recovered days later. Minister for Tourism, Tassaduq Hussain Mufti also expressed grief and prayed for peace to the departed souls.

The news comes almost two months after Rose was accused of sexually harassing eight women in his past, according to The Washington Post. King and O'Donnell announced the anchor's termination from the network on November 21.

Dickerson, 49, joined CBS in 2009 as an analyst and contributor and by 2011 was named the network's political director. On Jan. 2, NBC announced live on the air that Today veteran Hoda Kotb would officially join Savannah Guthrie at the show's anchor desk. CBS News has not announced a replacement for Chaggaris. The show has been without a regular third co-anchor since CBS ousted Rose in the wake of allegations of sexual harassment made against him by employees of his production company as well as staffers at CBS News.

The journalist John Dickerson is a Washington creature to his core: a presidential historian, repository of political trivia, and scion of a glamorous Kalorama family whose party guests regularly included Kennedys, Johnsons and Reagans.

Dickerson is expected to continue his duties as Face the Nation moderator.
