Eight women told the paper that Rose, 76, made unwanted sexual advances toward them, including lewd phone calls, walking around naked in their presence, or groping their breasts, buttocks or genital areas, while they worked for him or aspired to work for him. During the 2016 presidential campaign he moderated CBS News' two presidential debates and interviewed the candidates multiple times.
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.
Shortly after the report, Rose apologized for his behavior in a statement. In 2015, he was named host of "Face the Nation", succeeding its legendary host and anchor, Bob Schieffer.
Dickerson will join CBS This Morning as the network continues to recover from Rose's downfall, after the Washington Post and other outlets reported allegations of years of sexual misconduct by Rose against dozens of women in November. Rose, Gayle King and Erica Hill were the co-hosts at launch.
It was announced Tuesday by David Rhodes, president of CBS News. "Gayle and Norah continue to show tremendous leadership on our morning broadcast each day".
Dickerson is relocating to NY from Washington, D.C., full time. Will the addition of Dickerson cause new viewers to sample the show and help grow the overall audience? "CBS This Morning" is in its closest competitive position with "Today" in at least three decades and in almost two decades. CBS has not yet chosen his successor, effectively setting off a horse race at the network for one of television's most influential political roles.
NBC is also in a period of change.
