PBS Readies Christiane Amanpour Show as Fill-In for 'Charlie Rose'

PBS Readies Christiane Amanpour Show as Fill-In for 'Charlie Rose'”

CNN chief global correspondent Christiane Amanpour has been selected to be Charlie Rose's interim replacement on PBS, the network announced Monday.

PBS and its NY affiliate, WNET, will offer the anchor's nightly global affairs interview program on an interim basis to PBS stations nationwide. It will debut on New York's PBS Thirteen, starting tonight at 11 p.m. ET.

"Amanpour" will begin airing at 11 p.m.in New York Monday and roll out to other PBS stations beginning on December 11.

Amanpour, hosted by CNN chief worldwide correspondent Christiane Amanpour, is a global affairs program that airs on CNN worldwide twice a day on weekday afternoons.

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

PBS also revealed that they're finalizing plans for another public affairs program to air immediately after Amanpour's half-hour show. "We are pleased to welcome her to the PBS system and are gratified to offer this thorough and responsible news program to viewers nationwide". Since the harassment allegations surfaced, Bloomberg has also dumped Rose. Rose's program had been on PBS airwaves for decades. She has won every major television journalism award, including news and documentary Emmys and several Peabody Awards.

On Nov. 21, a day after The Washington Post reported that eight women have accused Charlie Rose of sexually harassing them, PBS formally cut ties with the famed interviewer and cancelled distribution of his nightly show. It has not found a permanent replacement for Rose yet.
