John Dickerson named new co-host of "CBS This Morning"

John Dickerson joins Gayle King and Norah O’Donnell as the new co-host of “CBS This Morning” beginning

CBS said on Tuesday that it had chosen Mr. Dickerson, 49, to replace Charlie Rose as the third co-host of "CBS This Morning", a spot left empty since Mr.

Eight women told the paper that Rose, 76, made unwanted sexual advances toward them, including lewd phone calls, walking around naked in their presence, or groping their breasts, buttocks or genital areas, while they worked for him or aspired to work for him.

The announcement, from CBS News president David Rhodes on Tuesday, comes more than a month after Rose was sacked from the network amid allegations of sexual misconduct.

Mr. Dickerson is to join the lineup of Gayle King and Norah O'Donnell, who have carved a niche as a relatively serious, news-driven morning team.

Shortly after the report, Rose apologized for his behavior in a statement. Dickerson has anchored FACE THE NATION since June 7, 2015, as it generated some of its largest audience levels of the past three decades. "He's the ideal complement to Gayle and Norah". Rose, Gayle King and Erica Hill were the co-hosts at launch.

"Every time I've been on the show, I haven't wanted the conversation with Norah and Gayle to end when my segment does", Dickerson said. Dickerson will move to NY as part of this new duties, and is expected to cede the "Nation" spot to a new anchor, Rhodes said in a memo to staff Tuesday. "CBS This Morning" is in its closest competitive position with "Today" in at least three decades and in almost two decades. He will continue hosting Face the Nation at least through the weekend as Rhodes and executive producer Mary Hager determine what's next for the Sunday show. Last year Scott Pelley stepped down from the "CBS Evening News;" after an interim period led by Anthony Mason, Jeff Glor took over the newscast last month.

The appointment comes a week after NBC's announcement that Hoda Kotb has replaced Matt Lauer on the competing "Today" show - another job that opened because of a firing due to sexual misconduct charges.
