Dickerson to replace Charlie Rose on CBS

Dickerson to replace Charlie Rose on CBS

CBS named television journalist John Dickerson on Tuesday to replace fired co-host Charlie Rose on the network's "CBS This Morning" news show.

Dickerson will begin Wednesday, and will relocate to be in NY full-time.

It's a return to the general news roots for Dickerson, a former Time magazine correspondent, but opens a new job on CBS' Sunday lineup. That move has paid dividends for NBC, which has passed "Good Morning America" in the ratings since Kotb began filling in for Lauer the day his firing was announced.

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 apologized "for my inappropriate behavior" and said "I am greatly embarrassed".

He had been political director for CBS News since 2011, and an on-air political analyst for CBS News since 2009. Rose, Gayle King and Erica Hill were the co-hosts at launch.

Dickerson also joins veteran broadcaster Christiane Amanpour in the elusive Charlie Rose replacement club. "Every time I've been on the show, I haven't wanted the conversation with Norah and Gayle to end when my segment does". But with "CBS This Morning", the network is in a better competitive position against "Today" and "GMA" than ever before. Will the addition of Dickerson cause new viewers to sample the show and help grow the overall audience?

Dickerson has enjoyed a fairly quick rise among the CBS News ranks in recent years. 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.

Since launching on January 9, 2012, CBS THIS MORNING has increased CBS' audience in the time period by 44% - or 1.01 million viewers - while NBC's "Today" lost 15% of its total audience and ABC's "Good Morning America" has plunged 12%.
