John Dickerson, 49, will join "CBS This Morning" as a co-host on Wednesday, taking the hot seat alongside co-stars Gayle King and Norah O'Donnell, the network announced.

In late November, CBS, Bloomberg Television and PBS announced suspension of Rose in the wake of a Washington Post report that said he had sexually harassed at least eight female employees and interns who worked for his production company. The show has been without a regular third co-anchor since CBS ousted Rose in the wake of allegations of sexual harassment made against him by employees of his production company as well as staffers at CBS News.

Mr. Dickerson - whose mother, Nancy Dickerson, became in 1960 the first female correspondent at CBS News - plans to move to NY and leave "Face the Nation", which he joined in 2015.

Dickerson, who anchors CBS News's Sunday morning show Face the Nation and serves as the network's chief Washington correspondent, will relocate to NY and join CBS This Morning co-hosts Norah O'Donnell‬ and Gayle King‬‬ on the show this Wednesday. "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". Dickerson will be replaced on Face the Nation.

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