Charlie Rose to co-host CBS Early Show starting in January, New York Times says
The New York Times is reporting that longtime public broadcasting talk-show host Charlie Rose will co-host a new version of CBS's The Early Show. The new two-hour show, expected to be announced next Tuesday, "will defy the gauzy conventions of morning television," the newspaper predicted, emphasizing a hard-news and conversational approach like Morning Joe on MSNBC and The View on ABC. Rose will join another new co-host, Gayle King, who hosts a talk show on Oprah Winfrey's OWN network, and current hosts Erica Hill and Jeff Glor. CBS declined to comment on the record about the changes. Rose declined to comment for the latest story but previously said he would “not under any circumstances” end his PBS show because of added Early Show duties. Charlie Rose airs on more than 200 PBS member stations weeknights. The program premiered in September 1991 and has been nationally syndicated since January 1993.
