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.

In late November, CBS, Bloomberg Television and PBS announced suspension of Rose in the wake of a Washington Post report that said he had sexually harassed at least eight female employees and interns who worked for his production company. Nothing official yet from CBS News, though sources are talking and word spread quickly. It's not known if Dickerson would continue his Sunday talk show, a role he's filled since 2015 after taking over for Bob Schieffer.

"John's impressive track record and strong all-around journalism extends CBS's commitment to real news coverage every morning at CBS News", said David Rhodes, president of CBS News.

Rose apologized "for my inappropriate behavior" and said "I am greatly embarrassed". Rose, Gayle King and Erica Hill were the co-hosts at launch. "Every time I've been on the show, I haven't wanted the conversation with Norah and Gayle to end when my segment does". Hill was later replaced by Norah O'Donnell, and now Dickerson will replace Rose, making King the only original host. CBS THIS MORNING is in its closest competitive position with "Today" in at least three decades and in almost two decades. Will the addition of Dickerson cause new viewers to sample the show and help grow the overall audience? 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.

NBC News had a similar morning show problem with Matt Lauer, giving him the sack from Today show only about a week after CBS News jettisoned Rose.
