John Dickerson Of CBS's 'Face The Nation' Is Set To Replace Charlie Rose

CBS News anchor John Dickerson has been named co-host of "CBS This Morning", replacing Charlie Rose, who was sacked amid allegations of sexual misconduct.

"On the campaign trail, I've collected compliments about "CBS This Morning's" commitment to the news for years now", Dickerson said.

Dickerson has anchored FACE THE NATION since June 7, 2015, as it generated some of its largest audience levels of the past three decades.

Virginia native Dickerson, 49 - son of pioneering newswoman Nancy Dickerson - was a correspondent for Time and Slate before joining CBS in 2009 as an analyst before becoming political director.

"This has to be the most popular decision that NBC News has ever made", said "Today" co-anchor Savannah Guthrie last week.

Rhodes continued to praise King and O'Donnell's leadership on CBS This Morning and believed that the trio would continue to deliver CBS' brand of excellent journalism to the audience every day on the morning news program.

Dickerson, now host of the long-running Sunday public affairs show "Face the Nation", will "transition off" that program in the coming weeks, then a successor will be named, according to CBS.

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".

USA TODAY has contacted representatives from CBS This Morning for comment. CBS News has not announced a replacement for Chaggaris.
