Christiane Amanpour to replace Charlie Rose on PBS' nightly program

UPI News Service, 12/09/2017 

Christiane Amanpour will temporarily take over the nightly programming slot on PBS previously occupied by Charlie Rose until the network suspended him over sexual harassment allegations, PBS announced Monday.

WNET-TV, the local PBS affiliate in New York City, is scheduled to begin airing the new global affairs interview program, "Amanpour on PBS," at 11 p.m. Monday.

The show is expected to roll out to all PBS stations beginning Dec. 11.

"Christiane Amanpour is a fearless and uncompromising journalist," said Neal Shapiro, president and CEO of WNET.

"We are pleased to welcome her to the PBS system and are gratified to offer this thorough and responsible news program to viewers nationwide."

PBS previously aired Charlie Rose in the same time slot since 1991. PBS and CBS fired Rose from programming in November after former employees and people who had sought jobs from Rose said he acted inappropriately toward them.

Allegations included groping, making lewd phone calls and walking around nude in front of them.

"PBS was shocked to learn today of these deeply disturbing allegations. We are immediately suspending distribution of Charlie Rose," a statement from the public broadcaster said at the time.

"Charlie Rose is produced by Charlie Rose, Inc., an independent television production company. PBS does not fund this nightly program or supervise its production, but we expect our producers to provide a workplace where people feel safe and are treated with dignity and respect."

PBS said it's working on finalizing another public affairs program to follow Amanpour at 11:30 p.m.

Amanpour is the chief international correspondent for CNN and host of interview program Amanpour on the cable news network.

She is also ABC's global affairs anchor.
