Veteran TV journalist Rose, 76, was sacked by CBS in November after being accused by more than 10 women of sexual misconduct. The accusers reportedly worked with Rose on his PBS interview show or at CBS News.
Dickerson, who anchors CBS News's Sunday morning show Face the Nation and serves as the network's chief Washington correspondent, will relocate to NY and join CBS This Morning co-hosts Norah O'Donnell and Gayle King on the show this Wednesday.
Rose apologized "for my inappropriate behavior" and said "I am greatly embarrassed".
It was announced Tuesday by David Rhodes, president of CBS News. Dickerson has anchored FACE THE NATION since June 7, 2015, as it generated some of its largest audience levels of the past three decades.
"Few people possess John's intellect, curiosity and journalistic chops", Ryan Kadro, executive producer of CBS This Morning, said. "He's the ideal complement to Gayle and Norah and will help us continue the momentum "CBS This Morning" achieved over the last six years". Dickerson will move to NY as part of this new duties, and is expected to cede the "Nation" spot to a new anchor, Rhodes said in a memo to staff Tuesday.

Dickerson, who also serves as CBS News' chief Washington correspondent, joined CBS News in April 2009 as an analyst and contributor. Dickerson has logged years covering politics for Slate and Time magazine, and spent almost 20 years in Washington covering the White House, Congress and economics. CBS has not yet chosen his successor, effectively setting off a horse race at the network for one of television's most influential political roles.
