Rose was fired by the network on Nov. 21.

CBS announced on Tuesday that John Dickerson will replace the ousted Charlie Rose as the third co-host of CBS This Morning, joining Gayle King and Norah O’Donnell. He begins in the role tomorrow.

Dickerson, a CBS News anchor, hosts Face the Nationon Sunday mornings, and the network said he will leave that role “in the coming weeks as CBS News prepares to name his successor.”

CBS cut ties with Rose a day after The Washington Post reported on Nov. 20 that eight women have accused the newsman of sexual misconduct. Rose also lost distribution of his eponymous interview show on PBS and Bloomberg TV, effectively killing it for now.

Is it just my weakening eyes? Or does John Dickerson look like a much younger brother or older nephew of Charlie Rose?

On first thought, he seems a good choice. He learned early how to put guests at ease: His parents were an It couple back in the Camelot years of JFK, among the “hosters with the mosters” in those mythical days.

If he gets the gig, may Dickerson prosper. Who knows? Maybe a repentant Charlie Rose will show up in a year or two as a guest…peddling a mea culpa book.
