CBS has settled on a replacement for Charlie Rose, who got the boot from “CBS This Morning” in November amid sexual harassment allegations.
The network announced today that it will move journalist John Dickerson into Rose’s spot. Dickerson, who has been hosting CBS’s “Face the Nation” on Sundays, will join Gayle King and Norah O’Donnell in the “CBS This Morning” lineup.
The New York Times calls Dickerson “a Washington creature to his core: a presidential historian, repository of political trivia and scion of a glamorous Beltway family whose party guests regularly included Kennedys, Johnsons and Reagans.”
The Times adds: “A genial on-air presence who speaks in a light Virginia accent, Mr. Dickerson received praise at ‘Face the Nation,’ which he joined in 2015, for his rigorous, and at times academic, approach.”
