CBS Aims to Boost Video-Streaming News Hub CBSN in 2018

CBS News anchor John Dickerson has been named co-host of "CBS This Morning", replacing Charlie Rose, who was sacked amid allegations of sexual misconduct.

PBS and Bloomberg, which broadcast the "Charlie Rose" show, also said they were terminating their relationships with Rose and canceling distribution of his programs in the aftermath of the misconduct allegations.

"CBS This Morning", which is now co-anchored by Norah O'Donnel and Gayle King, has shown ratings improvement over the past few years but still lags behind ABC's "Good Morning America" and NBC's "Today" show in the morning show race.

Nvidia unveils 65-inch 4K gaming monitors
Nvidia has unveiled a new "technology" called Big Format Gaming Displays ( BFGDs ) during its CES 2018 presentation earlier today. Oh, and there's Google Assistant support, too! The new displays are specially targetting the gamers with low latency rate.

"This Morning" has the smallest audience of the three main morning shows on US broadcast television with a daily audience of about 3.6 million. Dickerson is one of a handful of personalities that CBS has been trying out as substitute hosts since Rose's exit. "He's the ideal complement to Gayle and Norah".

"Today is our sixth anniversary".

USA 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channel CBS announced today that its shamed millionaire news anchor, sacked for alleged sexual harassment, had been replaced by another man after its higher-rated rival appointed a woman. "I've worked alongside John for nearly 20 years, and this is a great way to continue our mission of putting the news back in the morning".

Dickerson, who also co-hosts the Slate "Political Gabfest" podcast, took over "Face the Nation" from veteran host Bob Schieffer in 2015. Dickerson has been a reporter in Washington since 1995, covering the White House, Congress and economics.

Dickerson joined CBS News in April 2009 as an analyst and contributor to all of the network's broadcasts and platforms.

The CBS host will be joining co-hosts Norah O'Donnell and Gayle King for the morning show that ranks third in ratings behind ABC's "Good Morning America" and NBC's "Today" show. CBS THIS MORNING is in its closest competitive position with "Today" in at least three decades and in almost two decades.
