CBS names John Dickerson as Rose's replacement

CBS journalist John Dickerson will officially be replacing Charlie Rose on CBS This Morning.

CBS news hosts John Dickerson and Charlie Rose arrive to meet with U.S. President-elect Donald Trump at Trump Tower in Manhattan, New York City, U.S., November 21, 2016.

CBS had no immediate announcement of Dickerson's replacement on "Face the Nation".

"Gayle and Norah continue to show tremendous leadership on our morning broadcast each day", said David Rhodes, president of CBS News, in a statement.

Shortly after the report, Rose apologized for his behavior in a statement. Dickerson will be replaced on Face the Nation. "He's the ideal complement to Gayle and Norah and will help us continue the momentum "CBS This Morning" achieved over the last six years". Rose, Gayle King and Erica Hill were the co-hosts at launch. Will the addition of Dickerson cause new viewers to sample the show and help grow the overall audience?

"This Morning" has the smallest audience of the three main morning shows on USA broadcast television with a daily audience of about 3.6 million.

Dickerson is relocating to NY from Washington, D.C., full time.

The move the latest in a series of on-air changes at CBS News. While "CBS This Morning" trails rivals "Today" and "Good Morning America" on NBC and ABC, respectively, in viewership, it has made significant ratings strides for CBS with a mix of hard-news focus and serious discussion about the headlines of the day. But with "CBS This Morning", the network is in a better competitive position against "Today" and "GMA" than ever before. 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.

His appointment comes after NBC named Hoda Kotb to replace its own shamed morning star, Matt Lauer, on "Today", now the most watched morning cable news show in the United States.
