John Dickerson, the anchor of CBS' Sunday news show Face the Nation, will join Norah O'Donnell and Gayle King as CBS This Morning's third host, CBS News president David Rhodes announced Tuesday.

Rose was sacked in late November following allegations of sexual misconduct. It is unclear if Dickerson will continue to host the CBS Sunday news show as he joins "CBS This Morning".

Rhodes continued to praise King and O'Donnell's leadership on CBS This Morning and believed that the trio would continue to deliver CBS' brand of excellent journalism to the audience every day on the morning news program.

Dickerson is expected to continue his duties as Face the Nation moderator.

"Few people possess John's intellect, curiosity and journalistic chops", Ryan Kadro, executive producer of "This Morning" said in a statement. "He's the ideal complement to Gayle and Norah and will help us continue the momentum CBS THIS MORNING has achieved over the last six years".

"Today is our sixth anniversary".

"This has to be the most popular decision that NBC News has ever made", said "Today" co-anchor Savannah Guthrie last week. Dickerson starts at "CBS This Morning" on Wednesday. "I've worked alongside John for nearly 20 years, and this is a great way to continue our mission of putting the news back in the morning". During the 2016 presidential campaign he moderated CBS News' two presidential debates and as host of FACE THE NATION, interviewed each of the major candidates multiple times.

The journalist John Dickerson is a Washington creature to his core: a presidential historian, repository of political trivia, and scion of a glamorous Kalorama family whose party guests regularly included Kennedys, Johnsons and Reagans.

He had been political director for CBS News since 2011, and an on-air political analyst for CBS News since 2009. Before Slate, Dickerson covered politics for 12 years for Time magazine. The show is now hosted by Norah O'Donnell and Gayle King.
