“CBS This Morning” and PBS anchor Charlie Rose is a busy man, and his schedule is about to get even busier. According to the New York Times’ Elizabeth Jensen, Rose will be adding a show in primetime on Friday nights on PBS, likely replacing the existing newsmagazine in that slot produced by WNYC, “Need to Know”
The half-hour program, called “Charlie Rose Weekend,” will cull the best of his late-night program, which has been seen on PBS for two decades. It will also feature original interviews, and will touch on politics, science, business, culture, media and sports. It is scheduled to begin in July, PBS officials told executives of its member stations at the PBS annual meeting in Miami last week.
