John Dickerson Set to Replace Charlie Rose on 'CBS This Morning'

U.S. television channel CBS announced today that its shamed millionaire news anchor, sacked for alleged sexual harassment, had been replaced by another man after its higher-rated rival appointed a woman.

Ryan Kadro, who produces the newsy morning show, called Dickerson "the ideal complement to Gayle and Norah".

Veteran TV journalist Rose, 76, was sacked by CBS in November after being accused by more than 10 women of sexual misconduct.

Mr. Dickerson - whose mother, Nancy Dickerson, became in 1960 the first female correspondent at CBS News - plans to move to NY and leave "Face the Nation", which he joined in 2015.

CBS News has announced that a familiar face in the television news organization will join Gayle King and Norah O'Donnell on CBS This Morning.

Dickerson, a CBS News anchor, hosts Face the Nation on Sunday mornings, and the network said he will leave that role "in the coming weeks as CBS News prepares to name his successor". "He's the flawless complement to Gayle and Norah". He will join Gayle King and Norah O'Donnell on the A.M. franchise. But with "CBS This Morning", the network is in a better competitive position against "Today" and "GMA" than ever before.

CBS News' decision to hire Dickerson comes one week after NBC News made a prolific replacement announcement. Will the addition of Dickerson cause new viewers to sample the show and help grow the overall audience? 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.

NBC recently named 10 Hoda Kotb as Matt Lauer's replacement for the first two hours of Today.
