John Dickerson, the anchor of the CBS Sunday news program "Face The Nation", will reportedly take over hosting duties on "CBS This Morning" from Charlie Rose after Rose was ousted in November over allegations of sexual misconduct from several woman, sources close to the decision told The Huffington Post.

PBS and Bloomberg also ended relationships with Rose amid the allegations. It is unclear if Dickerson will continue to host the CBS Sunday news show as he joins "CBS This Morning". "He's the flawless complement to Gayle and Norah".

Dickerson, 49, was named chief Washington correspondent for CBS News in March 2017 and joined CBS almost a decade ago in 2009.

Wani's death agitated the crowd further and it started pelting stones at a nearby Army camp, officials said. One civilian has succumbed to injuries during the clashes in Khudwani village of district Kulgam.

The move illustrates the importance of morning programs to network news divisions, where they are the most reliable profit centers. Dickerson is relocating to NY for his new job. "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 has not yet chosen his successor, effectively setting off a horse race at the network for one of television's most influential political roles. His mother was Nancy Dickerson, CBS' News' first female correspondent and an associate producer on the first broadcast of "Face the Nation" in 1954.

Ryan Kadro, who produces the newsy morning show, called Dickerson "the flawless complement to Gayle and Norah". Dickerson has been a reporter in Washington since 1995, covering the White House, Congress and economics. Before Slate, Dickerson covered politics for 12 years for Time magazine. But with "CBS This Morning", the network is in a better competitive position against "Today" and "GMA" than ever before.

Since launching on January 9, 2012, CBS THIS MORNING has increased CBS' audience in the time period by 44% - or 1.01 million viewers - while NBC's "Today" lost 15% of its total audience and ABC's "Good Morning America" has plunged 12%.
