CBS News anchor John Dickerson has been named co-host of “CBS This Morning,” joining Gayle King and Norah O’Donnell on the morning news franchise effective today. He replaced Charlie Rose, who was fired in November after sexual harassment accusations.

Dickerson joined CBS News in April 2009 as an analyst and contributor to all of the network’s broadcasts and platforms. He served as the network’s political director for six years and was named moderator of “Face the Nation” in June 2015. During the 2016 presidential campaign, he moderated CBS News’ two presidential debates, and he interviewed each of the major candidates multiple times. Dickerson has been a reporter in Washington since 1995, covering the White House, Congress and economics. Most recently, he was Slate Magazine’s chief political correspondent winning the Ford Prize for Distinguished Reporting on the Presidency. A 2010 long-form series on risk profiled current Secretary of Defense James Mattis. Before Slate, Dickerson covered politics for 12 years for Time magazine. During his last four years, he was the magazine’s White House correspondent, covering the presidency of George W. Bush.

“John’s impressive track record and strong all-around journalism extends our commitment to real news coverage every morning at CBS News,” said CBS News President David Rhodes. “Gayle and Norah continue to show tremendous leadership on our morning broadcast each day. Colleagues, newsmakers and peers all appreciate the depth and context John Dickerson brings to every discussion of the day’s events – together with his co-hosts, he will project our best values on every broadcast.”
