PBS to temporarily replace Charlie Rose with Christiane Amanpour program

PBS announced Monday it will replace the now-canceled Charlie Rose with Amanpour on PBS, a global affairs interview program hosted by veteran journalist Christiane Amanpour.

Rose's show was canceled last month after several women came forward with allegations of sexual misconduct against the host. Amanpour on PBS will start airing on New York PBS affiliate WNET Monday, and on PBS stations across the United States Dec. 11. PBS said it is also "finalizing plans" for an additional public affairs program to follow Amanpour on PBS at 11:30 p.m. Amanpour is a "fearless and uncompromising journalist," WNET President and CEO Neal Shapiro said, and he's "gratified" to offer such a "thorough and responsible" program.
