There’s a new face on “This Morning.”
John Dickerson, the anchor of the CBS Sunday news program “Face The Nation,” will take over hosting duties on “CBS This Morning” from Charlie Rose after Rose was ousted in November over allegations of sexual misconduct from several woman, CBS announced on Tuesday.
“On the campaign trail I’ve collected compliments about ‘CBS This Morning’s’ commitment to the news for years now,” Dickerson said in a statement. “Every time I’ve been on the show I haven’t wanted the conversation with Norah and Gayle to end when my segment does. Now it doesn’t have to.”
Dickerson, 49, joined CBS in 2009 as an analyst and contributor and by 2011 was named the network’s political director. In addition to his gig as host of “Face the Nation” — which he took over in 2015 — he also serves as the chief Washington correspondent for CBS News.
The D.C. native also serves as a political columnist for Slate magazine.
He joins fellow hosts Norah O’Donnell and Gayle King on the daytime talk show.
CBS cut ties with longtime host Rose, 76, back in November after The Washington Post published a bombshell report in which eight women accused the journalist of inappropriate sexual conduct, which spanned over the course of several years.
The women claimed Rose would expose himself and make lewd phone calls to them while working on the “Charlie Rose” show or after job interviews for the program on PBS between the early 1990s and 2011.
PBS and Bloomberg also ended relationships with Rose amid the allegations.
