John Dickerson replaces Charlie Rose on ‘CBS This Morning’
John Dickerson, anchor of “Face the Nation,” will replace Charlie Rose on “CBS This Morning.”
Dickerson will join Gayle King and Norah O’Donnell on the morning-show panel Wednesday.
CBS cut ties with Rose on Nov. 21 after The Washington Post revealed a string of sexual misconduct allegations from women who worked with him over the years.
Dickerson joined CBS News in April 2009 as an analyst and contributor to all of the network’s broadcasts and platforms. He served as the network’s political director for six years and was named moderator of “Face the Nation” in June 2015. During the 2016 presidential campaign, he moderated CBS News’ two presidential debates, and as host of “Face the Nation,” he interviewed each of the major candidates multiple times.
Dickerson has been a reporter in Washington since 1995, covering the White House, Congress and economics. Most recently, he was Slate Magazine’s chief political correspondent winning the Ford Prize for Distinguished Reporting on the Presidency.
“Today is our sixth anniversary. Can’t think of better way to celebrate and kick off our next chapter,” King said in a press release issued by CBS.
“This is a new beginning with an old friend,” O’Donnell said. “I’ve worked alongside John for almost 20 years, and this is a great way to continue our mission of putting the news back in the morning.”
