PBS temporarily replaces 'Charlie Rose' with Christiane Amanpour

PBS will replace Charlie Rose with Christiane Amanpour on an interim basis after shelving the former’s long-running news show amid an ongoing sexual misconduct scandal.

“Amanpour” will air on New York’s PBS station, beginning Monday before rolling out on PBS stations on Dec. 11. The program will continue to air on weekdays on CNN International.

PBS cut ties with Rose last month after multiple women accused him of unwanted sexual contact. Following the accusations, the veteran broadcaster was also fired from “CBS This Morning.”
