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

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

"Face the Nation" anchor John Dickerson is taking over for Charlie Rose on "CBS This Morning", the network announced Tuesday.

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. Dickerson will start Wednesday.

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.

"There's just no way I'd be able to do both", Dickerson said. CBS is third behind NBC's "Today" and "Good Morning America" in viewership but has made steady progress in ratings and reputation since it was launched with Rose, O'Donnell and King six years ago.

"John's impressive track record and strong all-around journalism extends CBS's commitment to real news coverage every morning at CBS News", said David Rhodes, president of CBS News.

Last May a young man named Tyler Wesley marked the five-year anniversary of his spinal cord injury that left him in a wheelchair. According to TMZ , the preteen girl was a huge fan of West's, so her family had worked hard to get a hold of him.

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

The appointment comes a week after NBC's announcement that Hoda Kotb has replaced Matt Lauer on the competing "Today" show - another job that opened because of a firing due to sexual misconduct charges.

Dickerson's move to the morning has been in the works for several weeks.

Similarly, Rhodes said CBS has been able to keep its morning momentum despite the sudden loss of Rose.

The journalist John Dickerson is a Washington creature to his core: a presidential historian, repository of political trivia, and scion of a glamorous Kalorama family whose party guests regularly included Kennedys, Johnsons and Reagans. Dickerson will move to NY as part of this new duties, and is expected to cede the "Nation" spot to a new anchor, Rhodes said in a memo to staff Tuesday.
