New York, Jan 9 United States television channel CBS announced today that its shamed millionaire news anchor, sacked for alleged sexual harassment, had been replaced by another man after its higher-rated rival appointed a woman. Will the addition of Dickerson cause new viewers to sample the show and help grow the overall audience?
Dickerson has been the moderator of the Sunday morning public affairs program "Face the Nation" since 2015. He's also featured on multiple podcasts, including "Whistlestop" and "Slate Political Gabfest".
"Few people possess John's intellect, curiosity and journalistic chops", said Ryan Kadro, executive producer of "CBS This Morning". It's not clear if Dickerson will continue to host the program after he joins "CBS This Morning". "Now it doesn't have to".
"Today is our sixth anniversary. Can't think of better way to celebrate and kick off our next chapter", King said in a press release issued by CBS.
Dickerson will begin Wednesday, and will relocate to be in NY full-time. "I've worked alongside John for nearly 20 years and this is a great way to continue our mission of putting the news back in the 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. Dickerson has been a reporter in Washington since 1995, covering the White House, Congress and economics. He authored a longform series on presidential attributes, which won the Ford Prize for Distinguished Reporting on the Presidency. CBS News will name a successor for him at "Face the Nation". That sets him apart from ABC "Good Morning America" host George Stephanopoulos, who continues to host ABC's "This Week" on Sundays. But with "CBS This Morning", the network is in a better competitive position against "Today" and "GMA" than ever before. Use the hashtag #JohnJoinsThisMorning.
