John Dickerson named new co-host of 'CBS This Morning'

United States television channel CBS announced today that its shamed millionaire news anchor, sacked for alleged sexual harassment, had been replaced by another man after its higher-rated rival appointed a woman.

John Dickerson with his new "CBS This Morning" co-hosts, Gayle King, left, and Norah O'Donnell. Dickerson is a familiar face to the CBS audience as he entered the network in 2009 and spent his time working on the politics beat, where he covered several presidential campaigns and moderated two presidential campaigns for the network.

John Dickerson, CBS News anchor, was named co-host of CBS This Morning on Tuesday. It caught some CBS staffers off-guard, partly because the morning show was live on the air at the time.

He joins fellow hosts Norah O'Donnell and Gayle King on the daytime talk show.

But at Green Dragon, Levine said the move won't cause any changes and they won't slow growth plans or scale back any operations. Just Sessions' announcement has already sparked backlash from politicians on both sides of the aisle, he noted.

Dickerson replaces Charlie Rose, who was sacked in November over sexual misconduct allegations. Dickerson slowly worked up the ranks until he replaced legendary reporter Bob Schieffer as the moderator the CBS' Sunday current events program in 2015. "He's the ideal complement to Gayle and Norah and will help us continue the momentum CBS This Morning has achieved over the last six years".

Since Rose's departure, King and O'Donnell have been without a third anchor on some days. But with "CBS This Morning", the network is in a better competitive position against "Today" and "GMA" than ever before.

CBS journalist John Dickerson met comedian Stephen Colbert on the floor of the 2016 Republican National Convention for CBS's The Late Show with Stephen Colbert in Cleveland, Ohio. Last year Scott Pelley stepped down from the "CBS Evening News;" after an interim period led by Anthony Mason, Jeff Glor took over the newscast last month. The "Today" show decided upon officially creating an all-female co-hosting team after Matt Lauer was forced out - a historic move made easier because viewership of the Hoda Kotb-Savannah Guthrie program actually increased in Lauer's absence.
