Charlie Rose booked his return to “CBS This Morning,” reporting that his doctors said his recovery from heart surgery has been “exemplary,” the AP reports.
Rose will be back in the lineup on the CBS morning show on Monday. His return was announced on today’s show.
Rose had a heart valve replaced on Feb. 9, the report notes.
“Anthony Mason filled in for Rose beside Gayle King and Norah O’Donnell for the past month,” the AP reports. “The 5-year-old CBS morning show has been getting closer to market leaders ‘Good Morning America’ of ABC and NBC’s ‘Today’ show in the ratings, emphasizing a newsier approach.”
Rose, 75, will get back to work on his PBS interview show a few days later.
“Rose has a heart of spare parts,” the AP report notes. “He had one valve replaced in 2002 and, after falling ill while on assignment in Syria in 2006, had another valve implanted following emergency surgery in Paris in 2006. Last month’s surgery replaced the one installed in 2002, which had been expected to last about 15 years.”
