John Dickerson, CBS News anchor, was named co-host of CBS This Morning on Tuesday.

Rose was sacked by CBS and other employers in November after the Washington Post reported on a series of harassment allegations in Rose's past.

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

Dickerson will join CBS This Morning as the network continues to recover from Rose's downfall, after the Washington Post and other outlets reported allegations of years of sexual misconduct by Rose against dozens of women in November. Hill was later replaced by Norah O'Donnell, and now Dickerson will replace Rose, making King the only original host. While "CBS This Morning" trails rivals "Today" and "Good Morning America" on NBC and ABC, respectively, in viewership, it has made significant ratings strides for CBS with a mix of hard-news focus and serious discussion about the headlines of the day.

Virginia native Dickerson, 49 - son of pioneering newswoman Nancy Dickerson - was a correspondent for Time and Slate before joining CBS in 2009 as an analyst before becoming political director. "CBS This Morning" is in its closest competitive position with "Today" in at least three decades and in almost two decades.
