John Dickerson will replace Charlie Rose on "CBS This Morning"

John Dickerson will replace Charlie Rose on

CBS News has selected "Face the Nation" host John Dickerson as Charlie Rose's replacement on the "CBS This Morning" program, pairing him with current anchors Gayle King and Norah O'Donnell.

Eight women told the paper that Rose, 76, made unwanted sexual advances toward them, including lewd phone calls, walking around naked in their presence, or groping their breasts, buttocks or genital areas, while they worked for him or aspired to work for him.

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, 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.

Mr. Dickerson is to join the lineup of Gayle King and Norah O'Donnell, who have carved a niche as a relatively serious, news-driven morning team.

It was announced Tuesday by David Rhodes, president of CBS News.

CBS has been mired in third place in the broadcast morning show wars for decades.

"Few people possess John's intellect, curiosity and journalistic chops", Ryan Kadro, executive producer of "This Morning" said in a statement.

Dickerson joined CBS News in April 2009 as an analyst and contributor to all of the network's broadcasts and platforms. "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".

"Today is our sixth anniversary".

Dickerson is relocating to NY from Washington, D.C., full time.

Photo John Dickerson has an understated style that belies a shrewdness honed by years of campaign and Washington reporting. He served as the network's political director for six years. "CBS This Morning" is in its closest competitive position with "Today" in at least three decades and in almost two decades. Dickerson will transition from the FACE THE NATION anchor chair in the coming weeks as CBS News prepares to name his successor.
