Dickerson Set to Replace Rose on 'CBS This Morning'

Dickerson Set to Replace Rose on 'CBS This Morning'

Dickerson, who anchors CBS News's Sunday morning show Face the Nation and serves as the network's chief Washington correspondent, will relocate to NY and join CBS This Morning co-hosts Norah O'Donnell‬ and Gayle King‬‬ on the show this Wednesday.

More than a month after CBS This Morning fired Charlie Rose over sexual misconduct claims, the network has named his replacement.

"On the campaign trail, I've collected compliments about "CBS This Morning's" commitment to the news for years now", Dickerson said.

Dickerson is no stranger to CBS-he's hosted Face the Nation since 2015 and served as the network's political director. That sets him apart from ABC "Good Morning America" host George Stephanopoulos, who continues to host ABC's "This Week" on Sundays.

John Dickerson will replace Charlie Rose on "CBS This Morning", effective Wednesday, CBS News President David Rhodes announced Tuesday.




Dickerson joined CBS News in April 2009 as an analyst and contributor to all of the network's broadcasts and platforms.

CBS has been mired in third place in the broadcast morning show wars for decades.

And he has demonstrated a natural chemistry with King and O'Donnell when he filled in. Nothing official yet from CBS News, though sources are talking and word spread quickly.

Last week its "Today" show named Hoda Kotb as co-host, formally replacing Matt Lauer, who was sacked for what NBC called "inappropriate sexual behavior in the workplace". The "Today" show decided upon officially creating an all-female co-hosting team after Matt Lauer was forced out - a historic move made easier because viewership of the Hoda Kotb-Savannah Guthrie program actually increased in Lauer's absence.
