PBS fires Charlie Rose over sexual misconduct claims

PBS is the latest network to completely cut ties with Charlie Rose. Following multiple allegations of sexual misconduct, the network moved to cancel the newsman’s titular interview program.

“In light of yesterday’s revelations, PBS has terminated its relationship with Charlie Rose and canceled distribution of his programs,” read a statement, released on Tuesday. “PBS expects all the producers we work with to provide a workplace where people feel safe and are treated with dignity and respect.”

In a report published on Monday by The Washington Post, eight women who either worked or aspired to work for the Charlie Rose show on PBS claimed the host physically groped their bodies, made lewd phone calls, and walked around naked in their presence — among other unwanted behavior. Rose, 75, who was initially suspended by PBS, apologized for his “inappropriate behavior” in a statement posted to social media.

“I am greatly embarrassed,” he said in part. “I have behaved insensitively at times, and I accept responsibility for that, though I do not believe that all of these allegations are accurate.”

CBS News, where Rose served as co-host for CBS This Morning, announced his firing from the network earlier Tuesday. His colleagues Gayle King and Norah O’Donnell discussed the revelations on the show, stating, “There is no excuse for this alleged behavior.”
