CBS said on Tuesday that it had chosen Mr. Dickerson, 49, to replace Charlie Rose as the third co-host of "CBS This Morning", a spot left empty since Mr.

In late November, The Washington Post published a report in which eight women accused Rose of sexual harassment, including groping, nudity, and vulgar phone calls.

The announcement, from CBS News president David Rhodes on Tuesday, comes more than a month after Rose was sacked from the network amid allegations of sexual misconduct.

Dickerson joined CBS in 2009 as an analyst and contributor and was tapped to serve as the network's political director in 2011.

According to a release from CBS, Dickerson will join Gayle King and Norah O'Donnell on CBS This Morning on Wednesday. "I have behaved insensitively at times, and I accept responsibility for that, though I do not believe that all of these allegations are accurate", Rose said in a statement shortly after the disclsoure". "He's the flawless complement to Gayle and Norah and will help us continue the momentum CBS This Morning has achieved over the last six years".

"This is a new beginning with an old friend", O'Donnell said. But with "CBS This Morning", the network is in a better competitive position against "Today" and "GMA" than ever before.

While no surprise - Dickerson has had a successful run at "Nation" since 2015 - this move does represent a return to a traditional morning TV format. 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. 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".
