John Dickerson Of CBS's 'Face The Nation' Is Set To Replace Charlie Rose

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

The firestorm of sexual misconduct allegations engulfing the United States also upended the careers of Hollywood titan Harvey Weinstein and Oscar victor Kevin Spacey. It's not clear if Dickerson will continue to host the program after he joins "CBS This Morning".

Face the Nation anchor John Dickerson is expected to join King and O'Donnell on CBS's morning news show.

"John's impressive track record and strong all-around journalism extends our commitment to real news coverage every morning at CBS News", Rhodes said.

"This Morning" has the smallest audience of the three main morning shows on US broadcast television with a daily audience of about 3.6 million.


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. "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".

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channel CBS announced today that its shamed millionaire news anchor, sacked for alleged sexual harassment, had been replaced by another man after its higher-rated rival appointed a woman.

Virginia native Dickerson, 49 - son of pioneering newswoman Nancy Dickerson - was a correspondent for Time and Slate before joining CBS in 2009 as an analyst before becoming political director.

Some thought CBS might opt for an all-female anchor team consisting of King and O'Donnell much like rival NBC did when it named Hoda Kotb as Matt Lauer's replacement alongside Savannah Guthrie on "Today". CBS News has not announced a replacement for Chaggaris.
