John Dickerson, the anchor of the CBS Sunday news program "Face The Nation", will reportedly 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, sources close to the decision told The Huffington Post.
The network has used a rotation of anchors that includes Jeff Glor, Vladimir Duthiers, and Bianna Golodryga alongside King and O'Donnell as it searched for Rose's replacement.
Dickerson, who also serves as CBS News' chief Washington correspondent, joined CBS News in April 2009 as an analyst and contributor. "Colleagues, newsmakers, and peers all appreciate the depth and context John Dickerson brings to every discussion of the day's events-together with his co-hosts he will project our best values on every broadcast". 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.
He will be counted on to help CBS keep delivering its most-watched morning news show in decades.
Naming Dickerson to the role will end a period of uncertainty surrounding the program. Dickerson will be replaced on Face the Nation.
Rose apologized "for my inappropriate behavior" and said "I am greatly embarrassed". "I always felt that I was pursuing shared feelings, even though I now realize I was mistaken". 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".
CBS has yet to comment on the report.
The move the latest in a series of on-air changes at CBS News.
Dickerson, who has anchored the CBS Sunday political show "Face the Nation" since 2015 and moderated two 2016 presidential debates, will start his new job on Wednesday, the network said in a statement.
